News reporter and presenter Amelia Adams has been appointed as the next European correspondent for Nine News. She replaces Nine News’s current European correspondent Seb Costello.
Nine national director of news and current affairs Darren Wick told staff: “Amelia has been with our network since 2009 and has excelled in roles as a reporter for TCN News and as a presenter on national bulletins, TCN 6pm and daytime News, the Today show and Weekend Today.
“In her past decade with Nine, Amelia has reported on and presented live rolling coverage of bushfire emergencies, floods, Federal Government leadership spills, devastating tropical cyclones, the refugee crises on Christmas Island, the destructive Christchurch earthquake and the Japanese tsunami, where three successive meltdowns at the Fukushima nuclear plant threatened an entire nation and kept the world watching the disaster unfold live for an extraordinary and terrifying week.
“But she’s also done her fair share of chasing in the suburbs for the nightly 6pm bulletins – local courts, drive-by shootings, wild weather, medical marvels and the compulsory cute and cuddly animals at the Easter Show.”
Adams and her husband will relocate their young family to London from the beginning of July.
