Network 10 has announced that newsreader Natarsha Belling will deliver the news five days a week on morning show Studio 10 in 2019.
Belling (pictured above) will become a permanent figure at the Studio 10 desk next year, delivering all the latest from the team at 10 News First.
Ross Dagan, network director of news content at 10, said: “Natarsha is already part of Studio 10’s extended family. Her journalistic credentials along with her warmth and engaging nature are a natural fit for the program.”
Commenting on her expanded role, Belling said: “2019 is an exciting time for 10 News First and I’m thrilled to be playing a role as part of Studio 10.
“Mornings are when the big stories break, and I’m incredibly proud to be delivering our viewers the very latest on the news stories that shape and change their lives as they develop across the morning.”
Studio 10 is also welcoming Tamara Simoneau as its new executive producer for 2019.
Simoneau holds extensive TV production experience both in Australia and abroad, including five years at the Canadian edition of Entertainment Tonight serving as senior EP.
Commenting on her appointment, Simoneau said: “I’m thrilled to be joining a team with such an incredible breadth of talent and experience. It’s an exciting time to be jumping on board with 10 and I’m looking forward to all that lies ahead.”
Simoneau will commence her role as EP with Studio 10 on 14 January 2019 and succeeds Lucy De Luca, who’s served as acting EP this year and been with the program from its inception.
Dagan said: “Lucy has my warmest thanks for her work on Studio 10 – not just as acting executive producer in recent times, but across the last five years.
“Her commitment to the program has been outstanding. She goes with my very best wishes and will always be a friend of the show. “
Commenting on her departure, De Luca said: “Now that the show has settled in to its brand new look, the time is right to step aside and spend time with my family.
“I will miss the show and the amazing team that work tirelessly behind the scenes, but look forward to seeing the show evolve in 2019 under Tamara as EP.”
