#AUSTRALIA: Lee Lin Chin Leaves SBS

Lee Lin Chin

Last night, Lee Lin Chin read her final news bulletin for SBS. Lee Lin Chin has left SBS to pursue new projects. Not only did she read the news on the channel for 30 years, she was also the original spokesperson for the country at the Eurovision Song Contest between 2015-2017. She put out this statement:

“Having spent the bulk of my professional life at SBS, this isn’t by any means an easy decision. I shall be leaving a happy and satisfying role as a newsreader. My friends and colleagues for whom I have fervent respect will be deeply missed. There’s not one big reason, there’s many small to medium-sized reasons, which for the time being I wish to keep to myself but may talk about one day.”

The SBS team didn’t let Lee Lin Chin’s final broadcast go without putting a compilation package of her together. The end of her last broadcast and that package can be seen here:

Further news coming from SBS, Michael Ebeid has also resigned, allowing somebody else to take the channel forward with a fresh approach. Michael was instrumental in gaining Australia’s participation at the Eurovision Song Contest. He had the following to say:

My decision to step down has been one of the most difficult decisions I’ve made. I absolutely love this place and what it stands for… SBS is very much a family. Serving as the SBS Managing Director has been a real honour and privilege and I depart feeling confident that this is the right time for a new managing director to take the organisation forward. What we do, makes a difference to people’s lives and helps shape the society in which we live. SBS is the strongest it has been in over 40 years. We are more relevant than ever and we are ready for the future. Considering the struggle of societies globally to integrate diverse communities harmoniously, SBS today performs a critical role in the Australian community.
