ABC presenter Andy Muirhead, host of the Collectors program, has been charged with child pornography, the broadcaster has revealed.
The AFP said computer equipment was seized from the 34-year-old's home in Hobart during a search on Tuesday.
An ABC spokeswoman said the corporation was notified by Muirhead's management late yesterday that he had been charged with a serious offence.
"Mr Muirhead will not present the Collectors on ABC TV or the breakfast program on ABC Local Radio in Tasmania pending the outcome of the legal proceedings," she said.
