Chris Bath stays with Seven
Chris Bath has signed a new long-term deal which sees her remain with Seven News.
Late last week Seven signed newsreader Chris Bath to a new long-term agreement, following whispers she had been previously courted by the Nine Network.
Bath currently read Seven’s Sydney 6pm News on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but the new deal may pave the way for her to be part of the network’s new Sunday Night programme, set to challenge 60 Minutes as a Sunday powerhouse.
“I am really enjoying myself here at Seven,” said Bath. “It’s great to be working with people like David, Peter Meakin, Chris Willis and all of the team at Seven News. I am looking forward to being a part of Seven News and other projects for the network in the near future.”
Her new contract followed a recent network extension with Melissa Doyle.
The Chief Executive Officer of Seven Media Group, David Leckie, today confirmed the signing of Chris Bath to a long-term agreement with the Seven Network.
“We are delighted that Chris is committing herself to Seven for the long-term,” Leckie said. “We are number 1 in news and public affairs and she is a very important part of our success. We look forward to her playing a vital role over the coming years. And, I like her.”
Commenting on the agreement, Chris said: “I am really enjoying myself here at Seven. It’s great to be working with people like David, Peter Meakin, Chris Willis and all of the team at Seven News. I am looking forward to being a part of Seven News and other projects for the network in the near future.”
Seven’s director of news in Sydney, Chris Willis, added: “Chris and Ian Ross are key factors in the success of Seven News here in Sydney. We’re building an enviable reputation as the best in the business in news and I’m delighted that the team is locked in as we head into a new year and beyond.”
