Abbie Chatfield has announced she’s quitting her radio show.
The former reality star turned media success story, 28, has been hosting her Hit Network show Hot Nights With Abbie Chatfield since the beginning of 2022.
Chatfield took to Instagram Thursday afternoon saying she made the call “a little last minute” following a recent holiday, with her final show to air tonight.
“I’m really happy with my decision and super proud of myself for letting this role go,” she wrote.
“I simply need to put my energy into projects that bring me joy and that energise me, rather than draining me.”
She said she was looking forward to spending more time with friends and family, as well as focusing on her host of opportunities elsewhere.
“It’s also time to give someone else a go who would enjoy and appreciate the opportunity more than myself. I have so much on, and daily radio takes up so much time. I simply wasn’t enjoying myself day to day in that environment,” she added.
“This was my decision entirely, and I’m so glad I made it.”
Chatfield added her podcast would stay within the Hit Network, and that she would be adopting the segment she started on-air, Australian Made.
“I still am planning on doing Australian Made every week, just in a slightly different way. I’m so passionate about Australian music that this was the main reason I didn’t quit earlier, so I’m glad I can take it with me,” she said.
SCA Chief Content Officer, Dave Cameron, said: “For personal reasons, Abbie Chatfield has made the decision to step away from Hot Nights, her national radio show on the Hit Network.
“We are pleased to say that Abbie will remain with SCA, and we look forward to continuing to support the ongoing growth of her extraordinarily successful podcast, It’s a Lot with Abbie Chatfield, published on LiSTNR.”
Chatfield’s career went rapidly uphill after starring on The Bachelor in 2019, with the star now a prominent force in the Australian showbiz landscape.
She hosts a successful podcast, It’s A Lot, won the 2021 season of I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!, became a judge on Masked Singer Australia and also embarked on a sellout national live show tour.
Last year, she was the host of the debut Binge reality series, FBoy Island.
And it appears her multiple opportunities have certainly paid well, with Chatfield dropping nearly $1.8 million on a Sydney apartment in May 2022.
It marked her second property purchase, after acquiring a $1.45 million Byron Bay home the previous year.
