ABC News Content and Appearance


Southern Tasmania is taking the Victorian bulletin this evening due to technical problems.



ABC news at Five still scheduled on the main channel next week?



Standing presentation for tonight’s opener in NSW, not so great lighting

and straight after that story, a blooper with their reporter unable to hear Juanita.

Same style in Queensland



Joe O’Brien on the ground in Townsville for ABC News tonight.

Can we expect the QLD bulletin to go to air on the news channel tonight?

Late News tonight:



Interesting that that there were no sports stories on ABC News Victoria tonight despite a Vic Open golf preview report being shown on at least the ABC Nightly News at 11pm.

There was a report on Darren Weir’s suspension, but that’s moved into a news story rather than sports report.

And again today, 7/2. It’s refreshing.



ACT news being shown in NSW tonight.



Which is something I don’t like. I means I have to switch to ABC News channel or Twitter accounts of Seven News Melbourne for sport reports.



I’m a bit on the fence, if there isn’t anything worth reporting it means more in depth news reports, but totally understand where you’re coming from.

I know all news services are bound to have technical problems from time to time, but ABC NSW having to switch to the ACT bulletin for the 2nd time in less than three months (and at least the third in less than a year)?! :confused:

Thankfully from what I saw, at least they were at least able to get Graham Creed presenting a weather forecast with decent info for Sydney/NSW.

A shame Tom Maddocks left. He was a good reader
