Michael Thomson has been announced the new presenter for Nine News’ 6pm Perth bulletin. He will deliver his first news report in the new role on Monday January 22.
Thomson has been working in the media industry for nearly 40 years. He started his career in 1980 as a crime reporter on Daily News. In 1987, he joined Nine News as a news reporter before making a move to sport in 1990.
Thomson said: “This is the highlight in a wonderful 30 years at Nine. It’s a privilege to be able to deliver the news at six.”
Nine News director Shaun Menegola said: “Perth knows him as Thommo – we know him as a leader and the ultimate team player.
“Thommo is passionate about news, and in particular about telling people’s stories. He’s a true professional with decades of experience in news and television, and another reason for people to switch on to Nine News, which has been the innovator over the past few years with the introduction of Today Perth News morning bulletins and Nine Live Perth, featuring news and live chats, in the afternoons.”
