Martin will join Ellen Fanning to present the Sunday show in a move that effectively ousts current co-host Ross Greenwood.
Martin will continue to file stories for 60 Minutes and is set to lead Nine’s election coverage this year.
The appointment is bound to be one of the key decisions by new Director of News and Current Affairs, John Westacott.
Martin, in airing his thoughts, had always said he would be interested in discussing new projects with Nine. Clearly, the network wasn’t about to let him go to Seven, a mistake they made with Jamie Durie.
Sunday has been a trailblazing product for the Nine Network over 25 years but has slumped recently, most particularly since the exit of Jana Wendt. If Ray can help restore its former glory then good luck to him.
Looks like he got the gig just before Mary Kostakidis put her hand up?
