HELEN KAPALOS - NINE BIO

National Nine News presenter and reporter, Sydney
Helen Kapalos joined the Nine Network in March, 2001, as a reporter with National Nine News.

Prior to joining Nine, Kapalos was with NBN, Nine's regional affiliate in Newcastle. There she wrote, directed and produced an award-winning documentary on the closure of BHP, as well as several news specials. She also did stints as a late news presenter.

Kapalos began her media career as a reporter at ABC Radio in Newcastle in 1994, before moving to SBS after winning a national scholarship.

She worked in several areas at SBS, including news, the network documentary unit, the indigenous cultural affairs program ICAM and the health show Second Opinion.

Kapalos then returned to Newcastle and worked in commercial radio and at NBN before joining National Nine News.

She was involved in Nine's coverage of the Waterfall train disaster, with rolling live reports from the scene, and also presented a number of national bulletins on Saddam Hussein's capture.

Later this year, she will cover the Olympics for Nine, reporting from Athens.

Alongside her reporting commitments, Helen Kapalos also fills in as a presenter for Today, National Nine Morning News and Nightline.

She was doing her report with the usual crowd in the background, and of course they were all trying to drown her out with their yells....but just behind her it looked like someone was shaking up their beer to spray all over her, and she was trying to race through the story before she was soaked... :lol: :rolleyes: :lol:

Well done to Helen Kapalos on being promoted to Nightline host, upon Hugh Riminton's departure to CNN.

She'll do well :rolleyes:
