ABC‘s award-winning series Australian Story will pay tribute to Network Ten newsreader Charmaine Dragun on an episode to air on Monday 28 April.
Ms Dragun was a radio and television journalist in her home town of Perth before joining Ten News to read the Perth news bulletin from Ten’s Sydney newsroom. Suffering long-term depression, Ms Dragun tragically committed suicide in Sydney on 2 November last year. She was 29.
Dragun and her long-time partner Simon Struthers had planned to wed earlier this year to coincide with their 30th birthdays.
Family, friends and colleagues have been interviewed for the Australian Story tribute.
