Popular ABC host Stephen Crittenden has resigned from the national broadcaster after a stellar 22 years to join Monica Attard’s fledgling The Global Mail. Staff say his departure represents a significant loss of intellectual capital for Aunty.

Crittenden covered the full slate of roles behind the microphone, including national arts reporter, co-presenter of national arts programExpress, the head of the Religion Department and presenter of Radio National’s Religion Report before its axing in 2008. Currently a producer and occasional fill-in presenter on Late Night Live, he told Crikey today he was leaving with “a very light heart” to grab “one of the hottest new jobs in the Australian media”.
