Exclusively on Tasmania Talks this morning, Jacqui Lambie made the shocking announcement she will be resigning from the Senate, following revelations she holds a dual citizenship.

Off the back of Jacqui's emotional conversation with Brian Carlton, Tasmania Talks listeners call in to share their devastation over the news.

"We're losing a voice here we cannot afford to lose." Gary from Burnie says.
