So it’s made the BBC, and yet nothing from Nine?

On 7.30 after airing the pre -recorded interview with Bill Shorten, Leigh read part of Bill’s statement on the death of Bob Hawke then a tribute package aired.

Phil Gould mentioned it in commentary of NRL and said Nine will be preparing something for after the football.

RIP. He loved the cricket and was seen at the SCG sculling a beer in front of Richies

Obviously they’d had that sitting on the shelf for some time. Reminiscent of the SNL send up Dana Carvey once did of Tom Brokaw pre-recording breaking news on the death of Gerald Ford to be aired in the event he died and Brokaw was nowhere near the studio.

Surly they could’ve have gotten Perth to produce a newsbreak for the rest of the Network that’s not watching the NRL?

Poor form Nine.
