News culls Curnow
Television news in Queensland gets a new presenter from next month. David Curnow (pictured), who reads the 7pm news on ABC1, has been replaced by former ABC News Breakfast host Karina Carvalho, who is moving to Brisbane, ABC Radio reports. Curnow appeared to be surprised by the change. ‘‘I will soon be replaced as ABC Qld’s TV newsreader,’’ he tweets. ‘‘ABC feels that for bulletin to progress, someone else should be behind the desk.’’ He thanked colleagues and family members for their support, and viewers for their kindness over the years. Curnow says he’ll still be part of the radio news team. Curnow has been the weekday newsreader since 2009.
