Nine News Perth has told its two anchors Tim McMillan and Emmy Kubainski their services are no longer required, with Christmas just around the corner.
Nine says the changes are part of a broader change of direction for the bulletin in 2018.
“Nine would like to thank both Tim and Emmy on behalf of the newsroom for their contribution to Nine and wish them well for the future,” Nine said in a statement.
Emmy Kubainski said: “I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to bring Nine News into the homes of our wonderful viewers for the past three years. It’s been great to be part of Nine’s transition from Dianella into the CBD. I will certainly miss working with the incredible team at Channel Nine in Perth. They’re talented, hardworking and lots of fun. It’s been a pleasure.”
But Tim McMillan, who relocated from Melbourne to Perth for the role 5 years ago, shared an instagram image saying he was looking forward to his first holiday read.
The change comes just days after Ray Wardrop resigned as managing director and his replacement Clive Bingwa was announced.
Announcements for 2018 will be made in due course.
