Legendary newsreader Roger Cardwell back in the reader's chair

Roger Cardwell carved out a national reputation as one of the great newsreaders during the early days of television, but now he is back in the reader’s chair.

On the fourth Wednesday of each month he is part of the Burnside Council’s book reading program supported by the Royal Society for the Blind in Adelaide.

Even though it has been years since the legendary Roger Cardwell graced our screens, his listeners at Burnside Library hang on every word.

For many, hearing him read is an experience they will never forget.

“Before anything else, I’m an actor,” Roger said.

“That’s how I started as a teenager acting, doing school broadcasts when I was 18 and 19, that’s a long while ago.”
