News and Current Affairs
Nine News Adelaide is produced from NWS's news studios and presented by Kate Collins with Kym Dillon presenting sport. Brenton Ragless is the weather presenter. Will McDonald is the weekend presenter.
In October 2011, it was announced that Michael Smyth and Georgina McGuinness would not have their contracts renewed. From the end of November, Collins will present by herself and a new weekend presenter is yet to be announced.
From 1988 to 2007 the bulletin was presented by Rob Kelvin and the late Kevin Crease. This was one of the longest serving news duos in Australia.
Throughout the 1990s, Deanna Williams was the main fill-in presenter and state political reporter.
Following her resignation in March 2002, either Kelvin or Crease would fill in for McGuinness on weekends, but in 2005 the situation arose where all three presenters were unavailable, and then weekend sports presenter Mark Bickley had to read the news.
Ali Carle from Triple M Adelaide occasionally presents weather alongside her sport reporting duties.
In late 2008, NWS-9 launched its own local version of the station's flagship current affairs program, A Current Affair, hosted by Adelaide journalist Kate Collins. This was later axed on 25 November 2009 due to the economic crisis.
On 26 November 2009, one day after the axing of the local A Current Affair was announced, Kelly Nestor announced live on air that her contract as Kelvin's weeknight co-anchor with was not going to be renewed in 2010 and she would finish on 18 December 2009.
On 22 February 2010, it was announced that senior reporter Michael Smyth would be joining Rob Kelvin at the newsdesk.
On 31 October 2010, Rob Kelvin announced that he would retire from the newsdesk after 32 years on the air. Kelvin announced that he would present his last bulletin on 31 December 2010 after anchoring the news since 1983. News director, Tony Argas announced that Kelvin would continue to present the occasional special report and fill-in a few times a year when presenter are away.

“I perceived that to express those impressions, to write that essential book, which is the only true one, a great writer does not, in the current meaning of the word, invent it, but, since it exists already in each one of us, interprets it. The duty and the task of a writer are those of an interpreter.”
