Jennifer Keyte Joins Network Ten As Presenter

One of Australia's best-known newsreaders will be returning to Network Ten.

Jennifer Keyte has been a fixture on Australian television screens for over three decades.

And now the acclaimed journalist, newsreader and presenter will be returning to her roots at Network Ten as she joins the team at TEN Eyewitness News First At Five Melbourne as Presenter.

Keyte returns to Network Ten from the Seven Network where she has presented the weekend news bulletin since 2003.

Bringing a wealth of experience to her latest role, Keyte -- who kick-started her career in television in 1982 as a reporter and presenter for Network Ten -- will join weather presenter Mike Larkan at Ten later this year.

Speaking on her appointment to the new role, Keyte said:

I am thrilled to be joining the team to present TEN Eyewitness News First At Five in Melbourne. Returning to Ten, the launching pad of my career in television/broadcast journalism, is both exciting and sentimental. I am really looking forward to coming home and being part of the team again.

Network Ten’s Network Director of News Content, Ross Dagan added, “Jennifer is one of Melbourne’s favourite and most accomplished news presenters and reporters. She knows Melbourne and Victoria intimately and understands what viewers want.”

As well her longstanding association across the Australian media landscape, Keyte also is also closely involved with many organisations including The Royal Children’s Hospital, Breast Cancer Institute of Australia and World Vision.
