Cameron Price (born 24 September 1985)[1][2] is an Australian journalist who is a reporter with Seven News in Sydney.

He was formerly a Sydney reporter for Sky News Australia[3] and a Brisbane reporter for Nine News.[2]

Career[edit]

Price obtained a Bachelor of Journalism from the University of Queensland and early in his career worked as a reporter for WIN Television in Toowoomba as well as Nine News in Brisbane.[3]

In 2011 Price was nominated for the Walkley Young Australian Journalist of the Year award.[4]

His career at Nine News Queensland came to a controversial end, when he was sacked along with two others for his involvement in the faking of a live news cross during a news bulletin. The event which became known as "choppergate" saw news presenter Eva Milic cross to Price who was in a helicopter reported to be "near Beerwah", however it later emerged the helicopter was on a Nine Network helipad in Mt Coot-Tha 90 kilometres away.[5][6] Price began legal action against Nine, however the two parties settled out of court.[7] Price had been due to move to Sydney to take up a position with the Nine Network in the week he was sacked.[8]

Price then joined Sky News in 2011 as a producer, before accepting a role as on-air Sydney reporter.[9] Price left Sky News in April 2016[10] and the following month joined Seven News as a reporter.[11] He also occasionally files reports for Sunrise.[12]
