Recently Lee Lin Chin bowed out as SBS World News’ most loved news anchor for the past 30 years. She is well-known in Australia for her graceful presence, avante-garde fashion sense, acid tongue and a strangely monotone way of delivering the news.
Her twitter account is totally outrageous and she has won a cult following with her edgy, darkly funny and shocking tweets. I just love her rebellious and wild she is. And in a domain that’s normally dominated by much younger, boring, homogenous and white European faces -she has become an icon because of how different she is and also because she simply doesn’t give a shit what anyone thinks of her. I love you Lee Lin!
She isn’t retiring thank god and is apparently going to host a celebrity gossip show on SBS and will lend her face to a public transport campaign in Sydney soon.
