Friday November 30 turned out to be a big day in TV land (today is the last day of ratings).
Many staff left TEN, Breakfast ended, Matt White quit Today Tonight and the government announced new reforms.
Perth presenter Greg Pearce quit Nine News amid rumours he is headed to TEN.
Pearce has been presenting Nine News in Perth since 2008, as the sole anchor after the departure of Dixie Marshall.
In a statement, Pearce said: “It has been wonderful to bring Nine News into the homes of our loyal viewers for the past five years and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity.
“I would like to thank the Perth news team for their support during my time at Channel Nine. My colleagues are a talented bunch and I wish them well for the future.”
Matt Tinney takes over the 6pm bulletin from Monday.
Meanwhile TEN sports reporter and fill-in presenter Ian Cohen also leaves in TEN redundancies yesterday.
