Rafael Epstein will replace Steve Chase as reporter/producer on the ABC 702 breakfast show with Angela Catterns. Manager Roger Summerill says he is delighted to welcome Epstein: “Rafael’s commitment, enthusiasm and the profile he developed during the Sydney Olympics means he will … make a valuable contribution to the breakfast program.
Epstein has worked as a reporter and producer with Radio News and Current Affairs, as well as ABC TV. His career has seen him travel around Australia and to East Timor. He reported the Olympics last year and has been a regular guest on the Richard Glover and Tony Delroy programs. He will start on Monday 28 May.
