Former Nine News Director in Perth Shaun Menegola is to head up Seven News in Melbourne.
Menegola, who resigned last week from Nine, replaces outgoing Melbourne new director Simon Pristel, who resigned in October.
Network Director of News and Public Affairs Craig McPherson said, “Shaun has one of the sharpest minds in the news business. His energy and quest for excellence will help drive our formidable Seven News Melbourne team to further success.”
Menegola has previously enjoyed roles at the Seven and TEN Networks following a reporting career in print.
He begins his role at Seven News Melbourne in the new year.
