Another Channel 10 star LEAVES the struggling network: Respected political editor Peter van Onselen makes a shocking career move after four years in the role

Peter van Onselen, Channel 10’s respected political editor, leaves the struggling network and returns to a post in academia.

Mr Van Onselen first joined Channel 10 in 2018 after working at Sky News Australia and The Australian.

Prior to his media roles, Mr van Onselen worked as a consultant to Tony Abbott and was a professor at Edith Cowan University.

Ahead of Parliament’s first week of session last month, Mr Van Onselen hinted he was fed up with commuting between Sydney and Canberra for the Channel 10 role.

‘On the way to Canberra for the first sitting week of the year. I’ve been doing this for *only* four years,’ he explained.

‘I don’t know how politicians can last ten years or more. We sometimes forget the sacrifices they make!’
