Mel McLaughlin joining Seven
Seven successful in poaching sports presenter Mel McLaughlin from TEN.
Sports presenter Mel McLaughlin will depart TEN after three years with the network, and is Seven-bound.
“Mel has done a great job at Network TEN and we wish her the best for the future,” a TEN spokeswoman has told News Corp.
“We will be announcing an exciting new addition to our very talented and popular Big Bash League on-air team very soon.”
McLaughlin, recently on the end of brash comments by cricketer Chris Gayle, will now have the opportunity to cover the Rio Olympics with Seven, plus major upcoming events.
She will continue to work at TEN until her contract ends in coming weeks.
