Amelia covered the volatile final year of Donald Trump’s presidency and led the 9News coverage of the unprecedented 2020 presidential election. She reported from the ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests and the ‘Make America Great Again’ rallies.

She was Nine’s London based Europe and Middle East Correspondent, reporting on Brexit, the fall of Theresa May and the 2019 UK election. In the Middle East, she covered the Turkish incursion into Syria and the US assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani. She has reported directly from crisis zones around the world including the Fukushima nuclear disaster and the Christchurch earthquake.

Amelia said:

“I grew up admiring the greats of Australian journalism telling extraordinary stories on 60 minutes. I’ve been privileged to learn from many of them during my years on the road, and am absolutely thrilled to be joining the team.”

Kirsty Thomson, Executive Producer of 60 Minutes said:

“I am thrilled Amelia is joining the team at 60 Minutes.

“Amelia is a formidable journalist and fearless correspondent. Her work in Ukraine earlier this year was a standout, as impactful and unforgettable as her extraordinary reporting from the US Capitol building during the January 6 insurrection last year.

“I look forward to Amelia continuing her amazing career at Australia’s most loved and most watched current affairs program”.

Darren Wick, National Director of News and Current Affairs at Nine said:

‘It’s been a privilege to watch Amelia’s progression at Nine, from her reporting in the Sydney newsroom to her award-winning coverage as a correspondent in many of the world’s hotspots. She’s an incredibly talented and driven reporter and has earned her place on 60 Minutes, alongside the country’s best journalists.”
