Channel Nine reporters Adam Hegarty and Dimity Clancey are joining the 60 Minutes team

Channel Nine reporters Adam Hegarty and Dimity Clancey will join the team on 60 Minutes.

Hegarty, a much-admired reporter from 9News in Melbourne, and Clancey, a popular reporter from 9News Sydney, have confirmed they will join the current affairs program in 2024.

Currently, the 60 Minutes on-air team consists of veterans Liz Hayes, 67, Tara Brown, 55, Nick McKenzie and Amelia Adams.

Clancey told Daily Mail Australia on Friday: «It’s a huge privilege but also a responsibility to be able to delve a little deeper into the story.»

«I take it very seriously and it’s an absolute honor to do it.»

Hegarty also said all his colleagues were ‘thrilled’ when he was confirmed to be joining the journalism programme.

Hegarty, who started out as a News Corp cadet, comes to his 60 Minutes role after joining the Nine network in 2018.

Before that, the journalist worked as a freelance reporter in France, Great Britain and China.

While in Europe, he covered major stories including Brexit and the notorious Grenfell Tower fire in London.

Hegarty has also reported for Sky News, The Times and Channel 10 and worked as a crime writer for The Advertiser in Adelaide.

Meanwhile, Clancey moved to 9News Sydney in 2010 to cover police and crime stories.

In 2016 she joined A Current Affair and a year later her work was awarded the prestigious Walkley Award for a story about the confessions of murderer Malcolm Naden.

In 2020, Clancey also received the Kennedy Award for Outstanding Nightly News Reporting.

It comes after 60 Minutes was rocked by recent departures.

They include anchor Tom Steinfort, who has now settled into a co-reader role at 9News in Melbourne.

Meanwhile, another 60 Minutes veteran, Sarah Abo, looks unlikely to return to the show, having taken over the role of co-host on Nine’s Today in early 2023.

Clancey told Daily Mail Australia on Friday: “It’s a huge privilege but also a responsibility to be able to delve a little deeper into the story.
