10 News First's Melbourne and Adelaide bulletin will be presented by Adelaide's Kate Freebairn to be based in Melbourne.

Network 10's Director of News Content Ross Dagan said, "We are delighted that two talented and familiar faces from our existing Queensland and Adelaide weekday bulletins continue with the network in our two weather presenting and production hubs. This change is possible because we've evolved our plan for weather, so it mirrors that of news and sport."
