The Seven Network has announced the appointment of Seven News US correspondent Ashlee Mullany to US bureau chief.
Mullany (pictured above) replaces Mike Amor, who has returned home with his family to Melbourne to take on the role of weekend anchor at Seven News after a distinguished 17 years.
Senior reporter Paul Kadak will make the move stateside, joining Mullany and correspondent Amelia Brace as US correspondent for Seven News.
Seven’s network director of news and public affairs, Craig McPherson, said: “Held in very high regard as one of the country’s foremost news correspondents, Mike has led this exceptional team for almost two decades, and that depth of skill, passion and news gathering experience will further bolster our Melbourne team.
“Ashlee has performed outstandingly in her time as US correspondent covering all the major international events in recent years, and thoroughly deserves to take over this crucial position.
“While Paul brings to the bureau 23 years’ reporting experience, including reporting from three Olympic Games, major news events at all points of the globe and domestically. A true journalistic craftsman.”
