3AW morning presenter Neil Mitchell has signed with the Nine Network, set to become a commentator on Today, A Current Affair and Nine News.
Mitchell, whose 3AW show topped the latest ratings survey, was poached by Nine from Seven where he is a regular contributor to Sunrise.
“I was happy at Seven and they have been good to me, but this offer extends to several parts of the network and that’s what appealed to me,” he told the Herald Sun.
“We will see how it goes, but each of those programs offers a different style of commentary, a different style of issue and a different style of television.
Nine Network’s managing director Jeffrey Browne said, ”We are thrilled to welcome Neil to the family, particularly at a time when the network’s news and current affairs programs are once again dominating the ratings right along the East Coast.”
Mitchell, who was recently critical of A Current Affair‘s saga with a former escort, has previously been with Nine including when he once hosted a short-lived Sunday programme.
