The news about Mike Dalton

The news about Mike Dalton

Posted September 28th, 2011 by debritz

As I tweeted yesterday, Mike Dalton has been officially appointed head of news at Channel 9 Brisbane, replacing Lee Anderson, who resigned in the wake of the "choppergate" affair (even though he was not there when it happened).

I've been informed by a hopefully-reliable source that the picture run in other media today (below) is of a Mike Dalton, but not the one in question.

I believe the guy in the picture is a "wacky" reporter for Nine's Today show. The one now in Brisbane has been senior chief of staff for Nine news in Sydney for the past seven years.

According to his Twitter profile pic, the "real" Mike Dalton is a somewhat more mature man with a liking for fishing.
