“The new hour-long, live bulletin will bring Perth viewers the latest local, breaking news quicker and faster,” said David Mott, Managing Director Channel Nine Perth.
“Perth is the fastest growing city in Australia and our new live one-hour 4:30pm bulletin will keep up with the increasing demand for local news as it happens.
“With the return of daylight savings on the east coast this news initiative will give Perth viewers access to the latest news live, rather than waiting for three hours.
“If it’s happening in Perth now, it’s happening on Nine News Perth, live at 4:30pm.”
“News has always been my passion,” says Lee Steele. “I’ve really enjoyed being on the road as a news reporter, and now I’m ready to bring Perth viewers live, breaking news every weekday at 4:30pm.”
Seven News has a locally produced half hour bulletin with Angela Tsun.
Daylight Savings commences on the East Coast this Sunday morning.
