Melbourne’s king of talkback, Neil Mitchell, is set to become a key contributor to Channel Nine’s suite of news and current affairs programs.
Mitchell is heard by more than 500,000 Victorians every week on his top-rating 3AW morning program.
In his exclusive role with Nine, Mitchell will become a regular commentator on Today, A Current Affair and Nine News.
“So often, it is Neil’s insightful questioning and exclusive interviews that sets the radio news agenda of the day,” said Jeffrey Browne, Managing Director of the Nine Network.
“We are thrilled to welcome Neil to the family, particularly at a time when the network’s news and current affairs programs are once again dominating the ratings right along the East Coast.”
Mitchell, who was this year awarded the Graham Perkin Australian Journalist of the Year Award, today maintained his dominance as the No. 1 program in mornings in the latest Melbourne radio ratings.
“I’ve always admired and respected Nine’s commitment to news and current affairs and I’m now privileged to be a part of it,” said Mitchell.
“I believe that good journalism is audience driven and Nine clearly follows that philosophy too. I’m sure we will work well together.”
