Channel Nine's Peter Overton and Rob Penfold are among those recognised on this year's Australia Day honours list, for their service to broadcast media.

He joined Nine in 1976 after starting his career as a cadet at the Campbelltown-Ingleburn news. Over his four decades with Nine as a foreign correspondent, Penfold has covered some of the biggest overseas stories: the fall of the Berlin Wall; both Gulf Wars in Iraq; the September 11 terrorist attacks; and five US presidential elections and administrations.

Nine's National Director of News & Current Affairs Darren Wick congratulated both men on their achievements. "We're privileged to have worked alongside them as colleagues and grown to know them as genuine people of true character."Pete and Rob are two of the most decent blokes you'll ever meet. They're also two of the best news professionals Australian journalism has ever seen.

Men's rights activist honoured for service to gender equityBettina Arndt was admitted as a Member of the Order of Australia for her 'significant service to the community as a social commentator, and to gender equity through advocacy for men'. It's a shame you go for the most controversial honourees rather than use this as an opportunity to sing the praises of the people who largely go unrecognised by the media the rest of the time. Awful choice simply awful What?

Controversial commentator given Australia Day honour for ‘advocacy for men’Australians have reacted with fury to controversial commentator and men’s rights activist Bettina Arndt being recognised in this year’s Australia Day awards. 'Australians have reacted with fury' is a total lie. Feminists have reacted with fury, few other people care. Stop writing bullshit with an agenda and start reporting news. It finally shows some commonsense in this award! Finally, someone that really deserves it rather than virtue signalling minorities that only serve to divide the country In my opinion, pretending Van Badham has good opinions on anything, is like accepting medical advice from Belle Gibson.
