Deb Knight New Host Of Money News

Accomplished journalist and broadcaster Deborah Knight will be taking on a new role across Nine’s radio stations (2GB, 3AW, 4BC and 6PR) as the national host of Money News, commencing in 2024.

With more than 30 years’ experience in radio and television news, Deb has interviewed some of Australia’s most powerful political figures during her time in the Canberra Press Gallery and covered breaking global stories, including the September 11 terrorist attacks, re-election of George W Bush, and the Iraq War as a foreign correspondent.

Following her successful role as Sydney’s Ten News at Five Bulletin, Deb joined the 9Network in 2011 and has shown her versatility as a reporter and presenter across a range of programs, including Sydney’s 6pm News, Today and Weekend Today, and A Current Affair, which she continues to host each Saturday evening. 

In addition to these prestigious news and current affairs roles, Deb was also the founding presenter and reporter for Financial Review Sunday, where she further honed her experience in the economic, business and financial fields.

On her new role, Deb said: “It has been a joy to host 2GB’s Afternoons over the past four years and I’m thrilled to be staying within the Nine Radio family, taking on a broader role and a new challenge as national host of Money News.

“From the cost of living crisis, to increasing inflation and interest rates, there has never been a more important time to be bringing Australians the financial news that matters to them, and it is a privilege to be able to do this on such an esteemed program and radio network.”

Head of Content at Nine Radio, Greg Byrnes, said: “Deb’s versatility as a broadcaster and journalist makes her the perfect choice to host Money News. The program is an integral part of our weekday line up and plays a key role dissecting the pressures facing small business and household budgets.

“Deb knows finance and our audience knows and respects her. I’m really pleased she’s agreed to lead Money News into 2024 – as well as new projects across 9Podcasts, and continuing her regular column for and working on A Current Affair.”

Money News is broadcast across 2GB, 3AW, 4BC and 6PR from 7-8pm, Monday to Thursday, and is the premier destination for listeners to get their daily wrap of business and finance news.
