Wyatt, who joined TEN in 2010, presents with Stephen Quartermain from today, along with an updated news set.
“I am thrilled to be joining the TEN Eyewitness News desk alongside Stephen. After 11 years as a reporter covering some of Australia’s most gripping stories, presenting Melbourne’s 5pm news bulletin is a natural step forward and I cannot wait to begin the next chapter in my career, she said.
Stephen Quartermain said: “Candice is a good old-fashioned, hard-nosed journo. It’s a significant moment in her career and for the evolution of TEN Eyewitness News. I’m looking forward to working alongside her.”
TEN News Director, John Choueifate, added: “Candice was raised in Warrnambool and knows and loves Melbourne and Victoria. A policeman’s daughter, she has great contacts and has a connection with viewers. She has covered major stories such as the Victorian bushfires, the tragic death of Jill Meagher and the release of Schapelle Corby. Her new role will still involve some reporting.
“At TEN, we think it is important to promote from within whenever we can. We have also built a bigger news set and I’m excited by the new look. Candice and Stephen will be a great combination.”
