Anna on track with Cup gig

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - CONFIDENTI­AL -

ANNA Hein­rich is used to wear­ing many hats but she has a new spring in her step after join­ing Chan­nel 10’s Mel­bourne Cup Car­ni­val broad­cast team as fash­ion re­porter.

“I have been at­tend­ing Cup Week for al­most 10 years now but this is the first time I will be work­ing as a rov­ing re­porter,” Hein­rich, who is mar­ried to former Bach­e­lor star Tim Ro­bards, said.

“I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to that ex­pe­ri­ence. Nor­mally I am there with my sis­ters and I can let my hair down but this time I won’t be able to have too many cham­pagnes.”

Hein­rich said she hoped the role would lead to more op­por­tu­ni­ties at Ten. “I’d love to do some more pre­sent­ing and some­thing like this is a good tran­si­tion,” she said.

Hein­rich has man­aged to jug­gle two dis­tinct ca­reers since de­vel­op­ing a celebrity pro­file through The Bach­e­lor. She works as a so­lic­i­tor in Syd­ney, is a brand am­bas­sador and is also build­ing a TV ca­reer through ve­hi­cles such as Trial By Kyle, The Real Dirty Danc­ing and now the Mel­bourne Cup fash­ion re­porter role.

“I can’t be­lieve I have been able to con­tinue do­ing law,” she said. “I am in the of­fice ev­ery week, just not ev­ery day. I am try­ing to keep my foot in the door and con­tinue to prac­tise while do­ing ev­ery­thing else. It is one big jug­gling act but it is all work­ing. I am very lucky that I have an in­cred­i­ble boss and work for a great firm.

“I love the mix and va­ri­ety that my life now is.”

Hein­rich will be part of Ten’s Mel­bourne Cup Car­ni­val team which also in­cludes Matt White, Roz Kelly and Francesca Cu­mani.
