Long-time ABC Brisbane newsreader and journalist Shelley Lloyd is leaving the national broadcaster after almost two and a half decades of service.
Lloyd has presented the news in Brisbane for eight years, having previously worked as a reporter and news editor following state and federal politics.
She made the announcement on Twitter, revealing that Friday will be her last bulletin.
“I have some personal news to share with you. After 24 years, I’ve decided to leave the ABC,” Lloyd wrote.
“It’s been the greatest privilege of my career to present @abcnews every morning on @abcbrisbane. Sad to be leaving but grateful for the wonderful opportunities I’ve been given.”
“Will read my last bulletin on Friday. Excited about what’s ahead, whatever that may be! Thanks for listening,” she added.
