Sarah Ferguson Set To Replace Kerry O’Brien At Four Corners

ABC journalist Sarah Ferguson will be returning to the Four Corners next year, both presenting and reporting, replacing Kerry O’Brien who finished up his gig on Monday night.

Ferguson previously worked on Four Corners from 2008 until the end of 2013, winning a number of awards during her time there, including the Gold Walkley.

“There is no place I would rather be,” Ferguson said. “Four Corners has the past nailed and a future full of promise and excitement. A big thank you and farewell to Kerry O’Brien.”

Head of current affairs Bruce Belsham said: “It’s fantastic that Sarah has agreed to succeed Kerry O’Brien as host of Four Corners. It’s a great fit given Sarah’s history with the program and her stature in Australian journalism. It also allows her to combine presenting with her brilliant reporting from the field.”

In other changes in the 2016 season former North America Correspondent Ben Knight will also join the Four Corners investigative team. Knight has been based in Washington since 2013 and was formerly Middle East Correspondent and a senior reporter in Melbourne.

Executive producer Sally Neighbour said: “2016 is shaping up as another exciting year for Four Corners. I am absolutely thrilled to have Sarah stepping into the chair. She is a brilliant journalist whose work epitomises the excellence that is the hallmark of Four Corners.

“Ben will also be a great addition to our reporting team. His reporting from the US, the Middle East and elsewhere has distinguished him as one of the ABC’s finest reporters.”

Hitting Home, Ferguson’s two-part documentary on domestic violence, airs tonight and tomorrow at 8.30pm on ABC TV. Four Corners returns on February 1.
