Jennie Goodwin


Broadcaster Jennie Goodwin made history in June 1975, when she became the first woman in the Commonwealth to take on the national prime time news bulletin. The TV2 newsreader dispelled the belief that women lacked the authority to present network news. Goodwin left television in 1982, although she has made occasional return appearances.

I remember Jennie as an immaculately presented, thoroughly professional newsreader. I admired her as one of the trailblazers for women in our industry. Judy Bailey on Jennie Goodwin, in The Australian Women's Weekly, 7 June 2013
