Natalie Peters leaves 2GB after 12 and a half years


After more than a decade as Nine Radio’s Sydney News Director, Natalie Peters is leaving 2GB to take on a new role in communications.

Natalie joined Ben Fordham and Ray Hadley on air this morning to break the news of her departure, and say goodbye to listeners.

“After 12 and a half years in the best gig in the world, it’s time to move on to a new adventure,” she said. “It’s a sad moment but I’m excited.”

Natalie says it was time for a change.

“I’m just so incredibly grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given here at 2GB.”

Hadley – who gave Natalie her first gig – remarked “I’ve observed Natalie moving along the chain. She’s very quiet and demure, but when challenged by certain broadcasters, she was quite firm in her rebuttal of those discussions!”

Natalie paid tribute to the news team.

“These journalists work so hard. 24/7, they work their butts off.”

An AFTRS graduate, Natalie led the newsroom at 2GB and Nine Radio’s Canberra bureau, managing a team which produces up to 57 bulletins a day.

As an award-winning senior journalist, Natalie has put in the political hard yards, covering federal and state elections and Budgets.

Other assignments have included coverage of the Christchurch earthquake, Cyclone Yasi, the ANZAC centenary commemorations at Gallipoli, the Olympics in PyeongChang, Rio, Sochi and London and the Gold Coast and Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Greatly admired by her colleagues as both a mentor and as a friend, Natalie has also guided the journalistic talent of tomorrow as a guest lecturer at AFTRS.

Natalie finishes at 2GB this week, and will read her last bulletin at 6pm tomorrow.
