Mr Mooney said: “I’ve loved being part of the talented, hard-working 7NEWS Adelaide team for the past 16 years and I’m so excited to take on the role of news director. Keeping South Australians informed is a passion of mine and it’ll be a privilege to lead our brilliant newsroom.

“I can’t wait to get to work ramping up 7NEWS’ digital offerings, while continuing to hone our broadcast news service for the people of South Australia.”
