Paul Murphy moves in on 9News Darwin desk

9News Darwin Executive Producer Paul Murphy will be writing the week night bulletin rundown for himself in 2023 as he becomes the new Top End presenter.

Since the localised 6.00pm bulletin returned in 2020, Murphy has ensured Territorians are told the local stories that matter and kept informed about the latest news from around Australia and the world.

The change comes as the current 9News Darwin presenter, Paul Taylor, embraces a sea change in 2023 when he joins the 9News Gold Coast desk alongside Eva Milic.

Murphy said: “2023 will certainly be an exciting year. Paul Taylor has always been a great colleague and an even better mate, so it’s a rewarding feeling getting to pursue new opportunities together.

“I take great pride in giving the Territory community a voice and now being able to tell those stories myself makes it even more special. Stoked would be an understatement.”

News Director of Nine Darwin, Amanda Paterson, said: “From one Paul to the other, 9News Darwin will continue to deliver premium-quality news that its valued viewers know and trust.

“Darwin loves having a local news presence just as Murph does. He has a unique understanding of the audience, so it’ll be great for him to connect with them wherever they tune in from each week night at 6.00pm.”

General Manager of Nine Darwin, Steve Shervill, said: “Murph is greatly admired by the talented journalists and crew that make up the Darwin newsroom, so he’s the perfect person for the gig. He has been and continues to be the backbone of delivering local news content that matters and we’re extremely proud of. On behalf of everyone at 9News Darwin, we’re excited to see him flourish in his new role.

“Since 2020, Paul Taylor has brought a wonderful energy to the bulletin that he will inevitably take to 9News Gold Coast in the new year. We wish him every success in his new 9News studio.”

9News Darwin with Paul Murphy will commence week nights from 6.00pm on Monday, January 30, 2023.
