Ten Eyewitness News Presenters and Reporters


#853

Gosh I remember the days when Charmaine Dragun presented Perth’s news from Sydney. She was a great anchor with so much potential. Still miss her reading Perth’s news (even though Narelda is fantastic). R.I.P Charmaine


#854

God I remember watching her back years ago, but I hadn’t heard what had happened to her until I just did some research. How tragic :frowning:


#855

#856

Charmaine was a fantastic news reader and She was a rising star in my view. She just outshown when she was on screen when she was reading the news. I will never forget the day on her last bulletin either. :frowning: Narelda is great too. but Charmaine… she was fantastic.

There was an Australian Story about her back in 2008, I did have the episode recorded, but it’s long gone now.


#857

Brad McEwan’s stint on 3AW breakfast didn’t last long. Herald Sun’s Jon Anderson is back on board now. I hope Brad will return later this year, maybe during radio non-ratings.


#858

Tonight marks the last night of co-anchor bulletins for Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane as Hugh Riminton, Candice Wyatt and @lachlan_kennedy return to reporting. Hope we get to see @lachlan_kennedy presenting the news again soon.


#859

Was there any mention of it at the end of the Sydney and Melbourne bulletins?


#860

Nothing mentioned in Melbourne.


#861

Nope not here in Sydney. Hugh was solo.


#862

Farewelling yourself would be rather weird.


#863

It’s goodnight from me and it’s goodnight from him.


#864

Even if Hugh did want to farewell himself, there was no time for banter - Bailey’s forecast ran overtime causing a shorter than usual closer.


#865

Why is it that every time the axe doesn’t fall on Daily Bailey?


#866

Because the Daily Bailey Weather Wall is the forecast where you get it all! How could TEN axe such a competent weather presenter :joy::joy:


#867

No not Tim Bailey, I really like him, and he’s my personal favourite Weather presenter. But I do agree he should be axed from the 5pm bulletin and moved to another bulletin, like late news or a breakfast show where it’s a bit more relaxed. That’s if more bulletins were available.
What about having Tim Bailey on Studio 10 as a weather presenter? @blackbox


#868

Nothing in Queensland either.


#869

They were in the process of moving the broadcast back to Perth with Charmaine presenting but she sadly didn’t make it :pensive:


#870

I now hope to see Candice Wyatt send overseas a lot + headlining major/breaking stories in Melbourne.

She covered Shapelle Corby a few years ago (Quill nominated) & more recently Rio Olympics.

She’s a very good, flawless journalist (especially with live-crosses) who deserves so much more than this!


#871

Much more than what… being a “very good, flawless journalist” out in the field? If that’s her strength then best that she be in that role, surely?


#872

Candice Wyatt is going back to what she does best which is reporting in my opinion.Unlike many others here l was never a fan of her reading news .
I hope Lachlan Kennedy will become Natarsha’s regular fill in on Weekend News bulletins.
