Nine News Presenters and Reporters


#4683

Wendy was working full time on Gold Coast news wasn’t she?


#4684

Yep, Mon-Fri.


#4685

Lizzie Pearl is presenting Early News this week.


#4686

Yes, up until earlier this year when Wendy dropped Fridays and Eva Milic would drive down to the GC.

Of course, you could offer Wendy weekends only…

Nice to have someone different. Lizzie did well for her first time behind the desk.

#4691

Justine Conway returned from maternity leave on Monday and is presenting weather in Melbourne this week.


#4692

And did a great job in terrible conditions tonight atop a building with terrible wind.


#4693

Thursday (03.01.2019): Deborah Knight anchored in Sydney with Belinda Russell on weather. Tim Gilbert presented sport.


#4694

Not sure about everyone else but personally, I thought he looked somewhat Ray Hadley-esque in the suit he was wearing while presenting the first preview:


#4695

And is that a bad thing in your opinion?


#4696

I’m far from a fan of Ray Hadley, but certainly for reasons other than the way he dresses I can assure you of that!

As for Tim Gilbert, he’s a better presenter than Neil Breen but still quite average in my opinion. Others may disagree but personally I’d prefer to see Danika Mason presenting Sport on Nine News Sydney whenever Cam & Erin are unavailable.


#4697

All he would need to do is lose the tie and he’ll be spot on.


#4698

I find Danika’s pronunciation of some words to be strange, she seems to add a “em” or something to some words and it sounds slightly off-putting.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with Neil Breen’s reporting or reading style. I don’t get the dislike for the guy. He consistently breaks big sports stories alongside of Danny Weidler.

Friday -

Vanessa O’Hanlon is presenting Morning News.


#4700

Long awaited but here is a montage from Sunday:

#4701

Jayne Azzopardi presenting in Sydney tonight.

@SydneyCityTV Happy? :wink:


#4702

Yes. Good to see Jayne finally given the opportunity to present Nine News Sydney, over 22 months since we last saw her present a 6pm bulletin!

I still think TCN need to use her presenting skills more often in 2019 if they want to prevent Jayne from potentially becoming another Sarah Harris (ie, a rival network’s star) at some point in the future though.
