Australian News Anchor Nathan Templeton Found Dead on Walking Path at 44 – E! Online

The Australian broadcast news community is mourning the loss of one of their own. 

Former Channel Seven anchor Nathan Templeton was found dead near Barwon River April 9 in Geelong, Australia. He was 44. In a statement to News.com Australia, authorities stated the death is “not being treated as suspicious at this stage.”

“Our hearts are broken for an adoring father and a wonderful friend,” his family, which includes wife Kate Coghlan and two young sons, said in a statement to Australian Broadcasting Corporation, “who’ll be missed by many.” 

Templeton, nicknamed “Tempo” was described by his former colleagues during a 7News Melbourne April 10 broadcast as “kind,” “funny,” and “very good at his job.” 

After a role at Southern Cross Tasmania, Templeton started working in on-air news at Channel 10 in 2004. Eight years later, he began his role at 7News Melbourne, where he gained recognition as a poolside reporter for Australian swimming and for his coverage of the Olympics. However, he peeled back his on-air reporting duties for personal matters in 2022, according to Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Still, Templeton’s death is having an effect on his former coworkers.
