Upon Ann Bryan's departure from the Overseas Weekly, Procter served as the paper's Saigon bureau chief from 1970 to 1971. Over the course of his 40-year career in journalism in the United States, he covered topics spanning Watergate to Oprah Winfrey. Procter returned to New Zealand where he is active in the hospitality business.
