Australian TV’s game of musical chairs took a different turn this week after a major reporter from 60 Minutes announced he was going to disembark.

Liam Bartlett, a former Channel Nine reporter, has reportedly taken a job at Channel Seven just months after resigning from 60 Minutes.

According to The Australian on Monday, Bartlett, 61, is “almost certain” to join the ranks of Seven in 2023, where he will likely host 60 Minutes’ biggest competitor, 7News Spotlight.

Coincidentally, Mark Llewellyn, the current executive producer of 7News Spotlight, previously worked with Bartlett as 60 Minutes’ head of news and current affairs.

In October, Bartlett announced that he had quit his role on 60 Minutes, as well as his job as host of Nine-owned Perth radio station 6PR, but gave no indication of his next move.

In a statement at the time, Bartlett praised his former colleagues at Nine, saying “It has been a real privilege and honor to present the morning program in my home state and be part of the amazing 6PR team.”

“My time at 60 Minutes has given me so many memorable moments following in the footsteps of some of the best in the business. I am very grateful for all the opportunities,” he added.

It is the latest in a series of shifts among Australia’s top reporters.

Last week, Bartlett’s former 60 Minutes colleague Sarah Abo announced she would replace Allison Langdon as co-host of Nine’s Today Show.
