History

The bulletin launched on 7 January 2013 and was originally presented by Wendy Kingston.

In December 2013, Kingston went on maternity leave and whilst she was on leave Alison Ariotti and Natalia Cooper along with other presenters filled in for her. Kingston did not return to her original role on Nine News Now, instead becoming the news presenter on Weekend Today. Wendy's last appearance was on the 19 December 2013 before relieving Lisa Wilkinson on Today.

In October 2014, Amelia Adams returned from maternity leave to front the bulletin from Tuesday to Friday with Amber Sherlock hosting on Monday.

In May 2016, Amber Sherlock replaced Amelia Adams presenting the bulletin from Monday to Thursday with Belinda Russell presenting on Friday.

In September 2017, Amelia Adams became the Friday presenter with Belinda Russell moving to focus on presenting weather on Thursday and Friday’s during Nine Afternoon News.

As of December 2019, the show is currently on hiatus, with episodes of the British game show Tipping Point airing in its place during the summer non-ratings period.[1]
