Jacobs, a graduate of broadcasting at the WA Academy of Performing Arts, will fill the vacant role left following the death of Charmaine Dragun last year.
She will read the news in Perth when the bulletin relocates from Sydney in May.
“Narelda is very much part of the fabric of Ten News in Perth,” said Ten Perth news director Chris Hunt, “and has made a major contribution as a senior reporter. We are looking forward to her joining Tim Gossage and Michael Schultz on air later in the year.”
Jacobs has worked in a variety of reporting roles in the Perth newsroom and is currently a specialist court reporter.
She joined the Ten Perth News department in early 2000
