Caroline Tiriman retires

Long serving ABC Pacific broadcaster Caroline Tiriman announces retirement

ABC listeners in Australia might not recognise the name, but in the Pacific region, Caroline Tiriman is a very big name indeed.

Her voice has beamed out across the Pacific for 40 years, on short-wave radio from the Melbourne studios of Radio Australia.

Caroline was born in the East New Britain province of Papua New Guinea - after a stint with PNG's national broadcaster, she moved to Australia in 1979 to work with the ABC's international service.

She became one of the Pacific region's best known and most popular voices, and a much loved colleague to ABC Melbourne staff.

ABC Alumni wishes Caroline a long and happy retirement.
