Norm Beaman, the man who found Mokbel in THAT wig, retires
Image: Ross with Norm Beaman (and prop!)
On his final day as a news reporter, good friend of 3AW Breakfast and soon-to-be retired Channel 7 journalist Norm Beaman spoke with Ross and John about his illustrious career.
Some of Beaman's greatest achievements include finding Tony Mokbel in 'that' wig, locating wayward then Water Minister Tim Holding, and reporting live from the Beaconsfield mine disaster.
Norm's career has spanned 48 years, but he says he is now a dinosaur as to what constitutes news.
He told Ross and John: "If it didn't happen on the day, it's not news."
His career spanned longer than I have been alive, but right up to his last day on the job, Norm Beaman never came across as a "hardened journo".
Always such a pleasure to hear his voice & the passion he carried with him everywhere.
Congratulations Norm on an awesome career!HelenTyack Friday 26 October, 2012 - 6:39 AM
Just watching the Channel 7 goodbye to Norm, it is obvious that Fat Tony pinched the style of his wig from pictures of Norm when he was a moustachies mop-top. Good Luck Norm Beaman!Willow Thursday 25 October, 2012 - 6:23 PM
