MacDonald added, “I can’t wait to get stuck in to this hugely exciting project. These opportunities don’t come around very often so I am very grateful to Network TEN for letting me take part.
“It’s a real thrill to be joining this dynamic team and I am particularly excited by the prospect of learning from the likes of George Negus, Chris Masters and Hugh Riminton.”
MacDonald will be based in Sydney but will travel to follow news stories.
6PM with George Negus will launch in January 2011
