/Ayr, near Townsville.
Seven and ABC with coverage of Cyclone briefing live
Later Nine came in on the news conference but left to adverts before it finished.
Did Sunrise use reporters from Seven Queensland or were they all from the Brisbane newsroom?
On Studio 10 this morning we had a live cross to weather presenter Josh Holt.
And here ends the meme. RIP.
Nah, in a few years time we’ll be saying, “Hey, remember that large cyclone in Ayr, near Townsville? Boy, there was a lot of news coverage that day!”
I noticed that the drone footage that Nine mentioned yesterday in their coverage seemed to be pooled as the same vision has been seen on Seven. I had thought it would have given Nine an edge as many roads especially with low bridges are impassable just after a cyclone; in the past, boats would have been used to get pictures from some places.
The cyclone is now forecast to cross the coast further south than Ayr.
The cyclone taketh, the cyclone bringeth the meme back.
I honestly though Ayr was a fictional place before this week.
Studio 10 will start at 6am tomorrow to cover this.
Triple M & hit Mackay have dumped networked programs - Star & 4MK also running with local announcers.
