Since moving to Sydney last year, former Perth-based news presenter Sally Bowrey never felt like she had quite cut the strings from the city where she spent four years as a weekend anchor for Channel Seven Perth.
Now the blonde bombshell can combine her love for the two cities with a role as presenter for the live WA version of Seven's new daily prime-time bulletin at 7pm on 7Two, led by former Sunrise host Melissa Doyle in the Eastern States.
NSW native Bowrey, left, made the move back home in mid-2012 due to a job opportunity for her property development manager husband Richard Seddon and has continued her partnership with the broadcaster as a fill-in weather presenter for Sydney bulletins.
But with Seven News at 7 going live this week, Bowrey tells AAA she is excited to be connecting with Perth viewers once more.
"WA just got under my skin, I absolutely loved it," she says. "It only feels like my ties are growing stronger and I am so happy to be part of this new initiative.
"My time in Perth was one of the most fulfilling chapters of my personal and professional life, so it's fantastic that it's continuing for me."
In a twist of fate, the local weather segment will be presented from Perth by Angela Tsun, who started her career alongside Bowrey.
"Ange and I both cut our teeth at The Weather Channel for Foxtel in Sydney," Bowrey says.
"I am really stoked to be working with her again because she's gorgeous and a real professional when it comes to the weather."
Though she admits to missing Kings Park and Subiaco cafes, Bowrey is now well and truly settled in Sydney following a recent house purchase with her husband of three years.
But don't expect them to add to their family just yet.
"It's been such a busy year and we have really hit the ground running," Bowrey says.
"I am continuing to enjoy that but obviously family is so important to both my husband and I, so we are looking forward to that next chapter in our lives. We haven't put a time frame on it, though."
