ABC journalist Pip Courtney has been given the reins to the television program Landline. Ms Courtney originally studied poli- tics at the University of Tasmania and on graduating in 1985, joined the ABC in Hobart as a cadet. A shadow over Ms Courtney's career is not having her husband to share her successes with. ABC cameraman John Bean died in a tragic helicopter accident last August along with two of his fellow colleagues while filming scenes over Lake Eyre for a documentary. She and John met on one of her first Landline filming gigs and were mar- ried for 12 years.
