The Fifth Estate will be missing one of its veteran host-interviewers when it begins its next season. Hana Gartner will be packing a “new chapter in her remarkable life.”

For 35 years, Gartner has been cutting “to the heart of the matter in face-to-face showdowns with intimidating newsmakers,” according to the CBC.

She’s currently nominated for a Michener Award for her story about Ashley Smith, a teen who died while in the Ontario corrections system.
