Dominique Loudon rejoins 9News Queensland – Dominique Loudon is set to make a return to the 9Network, rejoining 9News Queensland as the new weekend sports presenter alongside news presenter Mia Glover.
“Dom”, as she is affectionately known, spent the majority of her 15-year media career at the 9Network, first joining 9News Gold Coast in 2011 as a news reporter. Showing her passion for sport reporting, she soon became the Gold Coast’s weekday sports presenter, becoming a leading voice in sports journalism.
Returning to 9News Queensland is a welcome home for Loudon with extra significance, having filled in on the weekend news desk as the sports presenter on many occasions.
“This is a full-circle moment for me. Returning to 9News feels like a homecoming, and I’m over the moon to be returning to the newsroom where my deep-seated passion for delivering news and love of sport really flourished.
“Growing up on the Gold Coast, I share Queenslanders’ enthusiasm for the thrill of sport across all codes, so having the chance to cover the big sporting stories and moments that matter is something I will never take for granted.
“This role has me written all over it, and I cannot wait to renew my connections and establish new ones with 9News Queensland’s loyal audience.”
Nine Queensland Director of News, Amanda Paterson, said:
“We all know Queenslanders love their sport and Dom is as passionate as they come, so it’s wonderful to welcome her back to where she belongs.
“Dom’s in-depth understanding of the sports landscape will allow her to continue to deliver Queensland with top-notch sports coverage every weekend, while radiating her trademark warmth and compassion. 9News Queensland’s weekend presenting duo will be unstoppable.”
The change comes as Michael Atkinson steps away from the 9News Queensland desk to pursue a full-time presenting role for Stan Sport.
Dom Loudon will join the 9News Queensland weekend bulletin, alongside Mia Glover, at 6.00pm from this weekend.
