Angela Pippos resigns from ABC TV

Posted in ABC1 at 11:02 am by Give Me The Remote

After 14 years at ABC Television, Angela Pippos has decided that she’s had enough and wants to try something a bit different.

In August she was courted by new Victorian Premier John Brumby to take over ex-Premier Steve Bracks’ safe seat of Williamstown. She turned the offer down, however she says that it got her to thinking.

“That approach was out of the blue and it did get me thinking about my career and my future,” she told The Age yesterday.

Pippos has been working as ABC TVs weekend sports presenter, herself a mad keen Adelaide supporter, since being controversially dropped from its nightly new bulletin in favour of Peter Wilkins. She has also been writing her second novel (her first was titled ‘The Goddess Advantage: One Year in the Life of a Football Worshipper’) and has hinted at a possible move to another form of media – maybe radio.
