Ten’s award-winning newsreader Hugh Riminton joins ABC Radio National

Ten’s Walkley Award-winning newsreader Hugh Riminton has joined the Sunday Extra show on ABC’s Radio National.

Riminton, who previously worked as a foreign correspondent for Nine and CNN, will remain at Ten once he commences his new Sunday role with the ABC.

He was annouced as the co-host of Ten Eyewitness News alongside Sandra Sully back in 2014, before being assigned a senior reporter role specialising in political and foreign coverage after a restructure early last year.

Riminton said: “Radio National is the true home of the Great Australian Conversation. I know its listeners are passionate, smart and engaged. I can’t wait to start.”

Alongside his presenting roles, Riminton also serves on the advisory board of Media Diversity Australia, along with the board of the veterans’ welfare charity Soldier On and the refugee education fund The John Mac Foundation.

In 2000, he won a Walkley Award in the Television News Reporting category for his coverage of the 2000 Fijian coup d’état.

Sunday Extra hosted by Hugh Riminton kicks off at 7.00am on January 28.
