Queensland newsreader Rod Young on Thursday night presented his last news bulletin for the Gold Coast edition of Seven News. His retirement ends a career spanning 45 years.

He started in radio and made the move to television in 1987 (pictured) as chief newsreader for ABC News in Brisbane.

He left ABC in October 2002, starting at Seven News in Brisbane a few weeks later, reading the news alongside Kay McGrath. Living on the Gold Coast, in 2016 he switched to reading the Gold Coast edition of Seven News from its local studio.
