Paige returned to Nine’s statewide news in 1994 as a weekend newsreader, and by 1995 was back in the weeknight position. Paige also hosted Channel Nine’s short-lived Queensland current affairs program, Eye On Queensland in 1997 and has been used in a presenting role in a number of documentaries on the network.
In 2003, an incident occurred whereby then weekend newsreader Mike London was alleged to have organized a female fan to complain about the news reading technique of Bruce Paige. It was alleged that London emailed the woman, believed to be a friend of his, to suggest that Paige “could do with a personality bypass”, suggesting that London did a better job of presenting. When the story ‘broke’ in the Brisbane Courier Mail newspaper, Mike London resigned from Channel Nine.
Paige delivered a series of reports from the region following Cyclone Larry in north Queensland. These were described at the time as being quite personal, as he grew up not far from the affected areas.
In November 2008, Paige was criticized for bumbling through co-presenter Heather Foord’s announcement to resign from the weeknight news presenting position. Paige showed no emotion to Foord and awkwardly commented that he respected her decision. Paige defended his comments, suggesting that he was being rushed to end the bulletin on time.
On Wednesday evening 17 June 2009, Bruce announced at the end of Nine News his intention to step down as presenter of Nine’s Brisbane bulletin. He says he and his wife will start exploring the World, but he says he’ll still be doing what he can to assist at Nine, adding a quote: “not goodbye but see you later”.
