MEET THE TEAM: Rural Reporter Dusty Fitzpatrick

"I’m genuinely excited to be working for a news outlet that likes to tell rural stories, especially as regional media continues to suffer cuts."

Dusty Fitzpatrick is 6 News' Rural Reporter, based in the NSW regional town of Bathurst.

Dusty joined the team at the same time other major outlets were cutting jobs & production in rural Australia, while also becoming the 3rd reporter at the time to be based in NSW.

Since joining, he's covered multiple important rural issues - including a mice plague & the impact of Sky News Regional on local communities.
