As the curtains close on his illustrious tenure with A Current Affair (ACA), fans and colleagues alike have gathered to bid farewell and extend their heartfelt wishes to esteemed reporter, Brady Halls, as he embarks on a well-deserved retirement.

During his 35 years with ACA, Halls has delved into a wide array of captivating stories. From shedding light on the plight of bushfire victims to exposing unscrupulous tradespeople, his coverage has spanned diverse topics such as NDIS, aged care, immigration, insurance, childcare, local council affairs, scams, neighborhoods, and even celebrity profiles.

In addition to the interesting subject matters he was able to explore, Halls enjoyed the privilege of collaborating with popular hosts such as Tracy Grimshaw, Ray Martin, Mike Munro, and Allison Langdon, showcasing his resilience and adaptability as a journalist.

His affiliation with Nine began in the late 1980s, when he initially made his mark as a young sports journalist. He garnered recognition for his coverage of the Albertville French Winter Olympic Games in 1992 on the Wide World of Sports.

Halls’ initiation into the world of ACA commenced during Jana Wendt’s tenure as host, where he presented captivating segments that became a regular feature every Friday night.
