Ian Ross (newsreader) - Career

Career

Commonly known as "Roscoe", Ross began his career in 1957 at Sydney radio station 2GB. He returned to Sydney as National Nine News reporter in 1965. Ross stayed at Nine for 38 years, where he is most known for his position as Today news presenter. There he also presented National Nine News on many occasions filling in for presenters who were either on leave or sick.

Moving out of retirement in Queensland, Ross joined the Seven Network in 2003, "lured back by the challenge of becoming Sydney's No 1 reader" to head the station's struggling flagship 6.00 pm bulletin. After making some steadily progress in 2004 with a strong finish to that year's ratings, finishing with 13 weekly wins out of a possible 40, Seven News overtook Nine News in 2005, to became Sydney's number one news bulletin. Before his final retirement Ross was only hosting Sydney's edition of Seven News from Sunday to Wednesday, with Chris Bath hosting the news on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Ross previously presented the news Monday-Thursday until Chris Bath began hosting Sunday Night.

On 27 November 2009, Ian Ross presented his final bulletin of Sydney's Seven News and officially retired from being a newsreader. He was visibly moved as he made his final farewells to his viewers and colleagues.

Famous quotes containing the word career:

    From a hasty glance through the various tests I figure it out that I would be classified in Group B, indicating “Low Average Ability,” reserved usually for those just learning to speak the English Language and preparing for a career of holding a spike while another man hits it.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    “Never hug and kiss your children! Mother love may make your children’s infancy unhappy and prevent them from pursuing a career or getting married!” That’s total hogwash, of course. But it shows on extreme example of what state-of-the-art “scientific” parenting was supposed to be in early twentieth-century America. After all, that was the heyday of efficiency experts, time-and-motion studies, and the like.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    Work-family conflicts—the trade-offs of your money or your life, your job or your child—would not be forced upon women with such sanguine disregard if men experienced the same career stalls caused by the-buck-stops-here responsibility for children.
    Letty Cottin Pogrebin (20th century)
