I am making a news reporter list for wikipedia and I need to find out all the reporters names for channel 7, 9 and 10. I have already got a few, and I was wondering if you could add to the list and tell me of any mistakes.

there used to be a section for this in the old Mediaspy Wiki. Maybe an idea to bring this back in the Mediaspy Archive OR The Spy Report.

Wikipedia formerly had presenter lists, but these were removed two years ago with the justification of WP:NOTE [Notability]. I think it is legitimate to doubt whether having long lists of presenters on Wikipedia would be in accordance with common sense applications of WP:NOT [What Wikipedia is not] and WP:NOTE.

Maybe the site editiors could move this list to the Archives or Spy Report and make it so people can edit it and add names.
