After taking some extended leave earlier in the year, Insight host Jenny Brockie has decided to make it a little more permanent.
“After a break this year and a lot of thought, I’ve decided it’s time for a change,” Brockie said.
“Hosting Insight for nearly two decades has been a highlight of my professional life. I’m proud of the work I’ve done and am hugely grateful to the talented Insight team and the many other fine people at SBS who’ve made that work possible.
“I’m looking forward to what comes next for me. I have no doubt Insight will continue to flourish and I will be welcoming the new host in 2021.”
Since 2001, Brockie has tackled an astonishing range of social, economic, political and human-interest stories on the show.
Over the years, topics have included:
- What is it like to be the loved one of someone who comes out as transgender?
- I’m not racist, but…
- Open relationships
- Electroshock therapy
- Dating After 60
More recently, the show has addressed topics including menopause, COVID-19, voluntary assisted dying and growing up mixed-race.
SBS will commence its search for a new host for 2021 in the coming weeks.
