David 'Kochie' Koch reveals next career move after quitting Sunrise

The TV star has plenty of exciting projects lined up after the breakfast show.

Just over a week after announcing his departure from Sunrise, David ‘Kochie’ Koch has revealed what he will be working on when he officially leaves the breakfast show.

The 67-year-old TV star and finance journalist, who will have his last day on-air on Friday, took to Instagram on Wednesday to tell his followers about his finance newsletter.

“Every Friday, I publish a newsletter. It’s called Your Money & Your Life,” he shared.

“I filter all the important money news that I think you should know about into one easy-to-understand newsletter that could actually change your life. Why don’t you subscribe?”


Kochie also wrote in the caption that people should subscribe if they want to make “smarter money moves” and “build a prosperous financial future”.

“Join me each Friday for the latest insights on property, superannuation, interest rates, and more,” he added.

The Channel Seven star first launched his Your Money & Your Life newsletter in 2019 alongside an online interview series and podcast of the same name.

What else is Kochie doing after Sunrise?

Kochie’s newsletter is just one of the many projects he will be working on after he leaves Sunrise, with the father-of-four explaining in a statement from Channel Seven that he is keen to shake up his routine.

“It's time for me to work business hours, and for (his wife) Libby and I to have a bit more flexibility to enjoy our burgeoning family, to travel and focus on our family business interests in Pinstripe Media and the Ausbiz business channel,” he said.

“As everyone knows, I'm a finance nerd so you'll still see me pop up every so often on RBA board meeting days or covering other big financial news, but as a guest rather than host.

“Coming up to 20 consecutive years as Australia's most-watched breakfast show is a nice moment to exit stage left with an enormous sense of pride and gratitude. Thank you for the privilege.”
