ABC investigative journalist Sarah Ferguson was announced on Friday as having been appointed to the position, ending months of speculation.

Ferguson, the host of the ABC’s Four Corners program, has been reporting for the public broadcaster from the United States since early 2021.

She will replace Sales, who has been the host of 7.30 for 11 years and will leave in June following the federal election.

Sales announced she would step down from the role in February, and said she intends to continue working with the ABC.

“I’m delighted to take on the presenter role at 7.30,” Ferguson told the ABC on Friday.
