Although I don't believe she ever worked for commercial media even their news services have paid tribute to Caroline Jones who died Friday after a fall at her Sydney home.
She was the first woman to cut the path for women in news and current affairs in Australia, first becoming a reporter for the current affairs ABC programme This Day Tonight and then host of Four Corners, an ABC investigative journalist programme similar to the BBC's Panorama.
She is perhaps best remembered now as the presenter of Australian Story.
I don't think her voice fully developed its rich modulation until later in her life. She is described as respected and loved by all who entered her world in whatever manner. An anecdote I just read was that she was nick named 'One Take Caroline', as nothing she did on air was ever mucked up and so never needed to be recorded a second time, and she never used an autocue.
