1 News NZ

Haha! Again, would love to know how this happened/why the playout system still had the old version loaded. The current 1News theme has been in use since 2015.


Such a better theme than the current one.


At a guess sound was being done by someone who maybe doesn’t do the news hour and located a end of bulletin track?


I think the old music always sounds better after you’ve had the current one for a few years. Would be nice to have a bit of rotation occasionally.

I did think, though, on hearing that again just how much more powerful it is than the current music. Would love a version of that to come back with the next big revamp.


Breakfast on air until 11.30am this morning


1 News should’ve sent Simon Dallow down to Napier for this evening and had Melissa Stokes or Wendy Petrie in the studio. Single headed anchoring can be limited in this situation.

Mihingarangi Forbes had worked at TVNZ in the past when she was part of the Te Karere team as a reporter.

John Cambell who was already in the area was live on 6pm tonight. Yes I do recon that they should’ve had him anchor from location with Simon in studio

JC is in Tairawhiti though… I think they needed Simon (or Wendy) on the ground in Napier.

Having said that, John’s PTCs are unrivalled, they were lucky to have him on the ground…


1 News extensive coverage from 5:30pm tonight.


Interesting to see that the same thing is still happening in reverse even post-merger kaput.

Some technical gremlins with the Hipkins feed according to Melissa Stokes on Midday. And then suddenly, RNZ’s web feed appears. Along with a nice surprise on the screen when the stream ends.

Judging by the framerate, it looks like a basic webrip.


I think RNZ are happy to share media conference feeds with TVNZ for web streams and their feeds have also appeared on the Herald/Stuff from time to time too. Think the favour is returned from time to time.


There could be a new legislation on renewed merger that will attract cross party support

There won’t be.

Because public media bill is a mistake and hope there is a better legislation to make TVNZ non commerical

1 News reporter referring to a ferry as a ‘vehicle’ in a report this evening… :roll_eyes:

Great A.I tonight on the Te Matatini Herenga Waka Herenga Tangata Festival story intro
