By AdNews | 21 May 2024

Chris Salter has been named director of news for Seven Melbourne.

Salter, who has been 7NEWS Adelaide news director since June 2018, will succeed Shaun Menegola, who resigned on May 6.

Seven said his successor at 7NEWS Adelaide will be announced soon.

Seven West Media's editor-in-chief and director of news and current affairs for the Seven Network, Anthony De Ceglie, said  Salter has done an "amazing job" in Adelaide, where 7NEWS has been #1 for more than 13 years.

“I’m really pleased that he has agreed to take this new role and I know he is going to make a huge mark on 7NEWS Melbourne as we endeavour to think differently about the future of our platforms," he said.

Salter said he can’t wait to roll up his sleeves and get to work alongside the "many brilliant people" who make up the Melbourne newsroom.

“We’ll work hard for the people of Victoria to produce broadcast and digital offerings that inform and entertain. We'll be the true voice of Victoria," he said.
