Seven News sports presenter and Telethon host Basil Zempilas is the new Perth Lord Mayor elect.

Zempilas, who is a former Weekend Sunrise presenter, last night fending off competition from mayoral hopeful Di Bain.

The father of 3 led with a campaign to “reboot Perth’s heart.”

Last week he confirmed he would depart 6PR Breakfast, owned by Nine Entertainment. A date for that departure has not been announced.

Meanwhile there’s another big weekend ahead this week, with a two day Telethon taking place from the Crown Theatre.



  1. not a shock with how blatantly wannabe newscorp Channel 7 have been about him, a real shame Australia is going down where the so called “news” medai can blatantly endorse one of their own

    • Doesn’t matter if he won by a single vote, That’s democracy. Basil won fair and square. As the saying goes, if you don’t vote, you get the candidate you deserve.
