NITV has announced the appointment of Michael Rennie as Presenter and Senior Producer for NITV News, adding a regular Queensland-based presenter to the Indigenous News and Current Affairs teams’ experienced line-up.


A proud Yorta Yorta and Gunditjmara man with a passion for sport and 20 years of broadcast experience, Rennie comes to NITV most recently from ABC News Breakfast.


In his new role, Rennie will present weekly NITV News bulletins, joining Worimi woman, SBS and NITV Presenter and Producer, Breanna Holden and proud Mudburra and Wagadagam woman and Head of Indigenous News and Current Affairs, Natalie Ahmat.


Rennie will play a key role in ensuring that NITV’s news coverage continues to cross state and territory borders, bringing a variety of Indigenous perspectives and stories from across the nation.


Natalie Ahmat, Head of Indigenous News and Current Affairs, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Michael to NITV, bringing his passion for news and sport with his extensive knowledge and experience. I’m excited for the year ahead with our strong team of deadly Blak journalists who continue to tirelessly report on national news from an Indigenous perspective.”


On his appointment, Rennie said: “I’m really excited to be joining NITV. My media career started in First Nations radio with the Brisbane Indigenous Media Association and it was the launching pad that propelled me towards a career in mainstream media. I’m looking forward to working in Blak media once again in what I think is such an incredible time of change, and opportunity to tell our stories in new ways.”


During his media career, Rennie has worked at Triple A Murri Country, 4BC and Southern Cross Austereo, before joining the ABC in 2012.
