Erin Molan quits Nine to join SKY News
In a surprise move, Sports presenter switches networks after 11 years.
Nine sports presenter Erin Molan has quit the network after 11 years to join SKY News from January.
Earlier this week reports emerged that she would no longer present on NRL, but present Sport for Nine News Sydney on weekends. However those plans are now asunder as she moves to the subscription news channel.
Paul Whittaker, chief executive officer of SKY News Australia said, “Erin is a highly respected broadcaster and journalist who fiercely advocates on issues of national importance. Her insights will add new context for our discussion and opinion programs.”
She will also write a regular column for The Daily Telegraph and continues at 2DAY FM.
This year Molan instigated defamation proceedings against the Daily Mail following stories around radio comments, which is yet to be rule upon, and has been an active campaigner on online safety.
At Nine she presented the NRL Sunday Footy Show.
