Nine News appoints Brett McLeod as Europe Correspondent
Brett McLeod to replace Ben Avery at London-based bureau for Nine News.
Nine News has appointed Brett McLeod as as Europe Correspondent, replacing Ben Avery in coming months, who will be returning to Adelaide after two years in the role.
Hugh Nailon, Director of News Melbourne said, “Brett is a senior network reporter, who will bring experience and gravitas to the role at a time when Covid is still dominating, Boris is in charge and the next chapter of the Monarchy will be compelling.
“Over the last two decades, Brett’s developed into an outstanding broadcaster of breaking news, as we saw recently with the George Pell Verdict, and when he expertly helmed the Network coverage of Prince Phillip’s death.
“This will be a return to familiar territory for Brett, after his first posting to the bureau in the early 2000s.”
McLeod will take up his role from September 1st.
