I didn’t realise The World has now returned to its former time slot at 9.00pm.

Must have been last week.

Also, 10.00pm now has the ABC Nightly News.

With The Drum being axed, it also means the return of the 11pm bulletin (Presented from Perth). The simulcast of 7.30 (was on late last year) has also been removed, with a repeat now airing at 10:30pm.

It’s getting like Sky News 15 years ago! Just need them to hire Sharon McKenzie, bring Terry Willesee and Leigh Hatcher out of retirement and we’ll be set. :wink:

Back when it was watchable. Have not watched it since.

They’ve also had Kelly Nestor (Who was on Sky News around that same time) filling in on ABC Radio Adelaide recently.

many people have different jobs at different organisations over the course of their career.

Some technical issues on the news channel this afternoon. They had to switch over to a National Press Club replay just after 5.50pm AEDT before resuming at 7pm.

Wow. Really?! I never knew that… :roll_eyes:

Is The World pre recorded? During daytime hrs that is?

I know that The World This Week is pre-recorded, however I think the program is live, as Yvonne Young is a regular fill in, who also does the live bulletins before and after The World. Also has some live crosses and interviews I think.

Don’t they normally do a live version then replay it?

A few weeks ago.

Is ABC just rotating between presenters for Mornings now? Lorna Dunkley presenting today.

Dan Bourchier, who is meant to be covering Thursday-Friday mornings, and weekend day shift, appears to be on leave, meaning that Lorna is covering those shifts.

IMO they should give Lorna a permanent shift on the NC. Very good presenter, especially in comparison to others.
