I don’t think anybody thinks it was his idea, but he would certainly have had words over recent years about transition to retirement. If he’s not keen on what’s happening, I am sure by now he knows where the door is.
Dougal Beatty presenting tonight in Melbourne.
Mark Burrows is presenting the Friday bulletin
Davina Smith had a report tonight in Sydney, but she didn’t present any bulletins this week…
Maybe she doesn’t present Morning News/Sydney 4pm anymore?
I think she could be on holiday. Sounded very echoey and it was a story about overseas.
She was on Weekend Today reporting from Brisbane a couple of weekends ago, so I dare say she is taking some time off with the family.
They should get Tom to do a few Friday to
Sunday bulletins to get him ready for launch.
Dougal is a tough match for Peter Mitchell on 7.
Did he present the afternoon news also?
Has there ever been a time where he has presented both the afternoon news and the 6:00pm news?
Peter Hitchener will present his final weeknight bulletin this Thursday November 30. Speaking to Fiona Byrne in the Sunday Herald Sun, Hitch said that he had been mulling over this decision for months before deciding to scale back his workload.
Whether it was his choice or not, Nine has lost control of the narrative and a long interview a week later probably won’t convince people (note I haven’t actually read the piece).
Mimi Becker presenting weather in Melbourne. Believe this is her first time.
Sydney- Mark Burrows
Brisbane- Paul Taylor
No she presented the weather on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day this year
A coffee before my last Monday night bulletin of @9NewsMelb. Check out the awesome coffee mug, a gift from TJ... I've been so lucky working with such amazing colleagues. I hope you’ll join me for the weekend news on Nine in 2024 pic.twitter.com/l0kanPJn0B— Peter Hitchener (@phitchener9) November 27, 2023
Do we know what night is his final bulletin? Thursday or Friday?
