He said: “Matt has been an integral member of the Nine News team since 2010 as the producer of our nightly 6pm News bulletin in Melbourne. He’s also been involved in Nine’s election coverages and produced the Nine News digital program ‘The Rundown’.

“A passionate Hawthorn fan and sports lover, Matt has been involved in News coverage of the World Cup in Brazil and has played an important role in Nine’s Australian Open coverage over the last two years.”

Conway will report directly to Williams as Nine brings all of its AFL content under the Wide World of Sports banner.
