ABC Radio’s John Logan retires
He has one of the most recognisable voices on the ABC in Sydney and across NSW and after 40 years, John Logan has retired.
The veteran ABC radio newsreader joined the ABC in 1973 as an announcer in Rockhampton in Queensland. In 2013 he celebrated his 40th year with ABC and while not one for the spotlight he did share some advice that he has never forgotten from the late ABC presenter James Dibble.
“When you are reading the news you do not just read it like willy-nilly”,Dibble told him. “You are reading it to one person. You are reading their bulletin.”
ABC NSW news editor Shane McLeod advised ABC staff that John has always been “a low-profile type of person” and so with his retirement “didn’t want to make a big fuss about his decision to step away from the microphone”. John has been on leave for the last 12 months.
John was also featured in Radio Todays Top 40 Metro Radio Newsreaders of All Time in November last year.
