Sounds like Seven News Sydney has landed two new reporters: Amy Clements (ex-Nine News Darwin) and Jacquelin Robson (ex-Nine News Perth and Seven News Perth).
As for Elspeth Hussey - I think her stint in Sydney is temporary.
I think she has presented several stories in this presentation format several times in the past twelve months.
She’s much more natural over Elsbeth.
Agreed, very underrated, Elsbeth isn’t overly liked after the Sam Powell-Pepper hideout and the infamous Pizza Bar incidents. Andrea and Amelia are doing a good job covering for Elsbeth anyway.
Thursday 28 July & Friday 29 July
Jayde Vincent is presenting Afternoon News in Melbourne.
Mike Amor is presenting solo in Melbourne with Andrew McCormack presenting sport again this weekend.
Katie Brown is presenting sport on (national) Morning News this week.
Jacquelin Robson back in Perth on 7
Obviously just filling in for a couple of weeks
Yes appears journos from all newsrooms are having a go in Sydney at the moment.
Tuesday 2 August and Wednesday 3 August -
Sonia Marinelli presenting weather in Melbourne tonight.
Perth reporter Emily Baker is next to have a stint in Sydney - presumably filling in for Mylee Hogan who is in Birmingham for the Commonwealth Games.
Love how when other cities are short staffed the team just work harder, I’ve seen reporters have 2 packages and a do a cross. But Sydney short? better fly people over and put them up for a week.
To be fair resources are a little more stretched than usual due to the Commonwealth Games coverage. It hasn’t been unusual for reporters to do more than one report for the Sydney bulletin, either. Even Ann Sanders has taken on additional duties and presented reports for the 6pm news. We also had the situation a couple of weeks ago where a presenter worked across both Sunrise and The Morning Show.
Also the Sydney newsrooms produce a lot of packages that are taken nationally.
