While fans of Insiders have been used to the face and voice of George Megalogenis for years, the judges at the Logies are a bit slow to join the Megalogenis fan club. The journalist and author has been nominated in the “best new talent” category for Australian television’s night of nights, for his role as writer and presenter of the series Making Australia Great. 


Tweeting about the nomination, Megalogenis said “do they realise I’m almost as old as Bert Newton?”

Never too late to be a “new talent” — the full list of nominees (and the chance to vote) is here.
