One of the most experienced and respected in the industry Peter Mitchell’s face is very familiar to those tuning into Seven Nightly News in Melbourne. He’s been an integral part of television news for over 35 years as a reporter, producer and presenter. Growing up in Victoria with two brothers, sports were always on the menu – particularly football and cricket. These skills came in handy in 1981, when Peter joined Channel Nine in the Sport News Department. By then, he’d also taken up golf, mainly because it suited his new working hours.
