MEET THE TEAM: Political Reporter Roman Mackinnon

Updated: Jan 1

"I have always loved being in front of the camera, and loved English."

Roman Mackinnon is 6 News' Federal Political Reporter, covering news from across the country from his home city of Brisbane.


His first ever report was in 2017 on Tropical Cyclone Debbie, using a catch-and-scoop handle as the microphone and a raincoat in his backyard.


Roman used to pretend that he was apart of a big news station and was invited into one TV studio for his tenth birthday.


Whenever there is a big story, like a flood emergency, you'll find him in a place that matters - filming, editing and uploading all of his videos by himself.


You can follow him on Twitter, Instagram, TikTok & subscribe to him on YouTube.
