Broadcasting icon, fashion giant and all round legend Lee Lin Chin has announced her resignation after three unforgettable decades with SBS World News, and fans are rightly devastated.

Lee Lin made the announcement on Thursday, telling Ten Daily that leaving SBS was “something I’ve considered for a number of years now. I thought SBS would just fire me one day so I’d never have to make the decision”.

Since learning of Lee Lin’s resignation, fans have taken to social media en masse to express their grief and pay tribute to their queen.

Of course, just because she’s leaving World News doesn’t mean she’s giving up the game entirely.

Lee Lin will read her final bulletin for SBS World News on Sunday night.
