Plenty of famous Nine Melbourne faces in this photo including Eddie Maguire, Brian Naylor, Molly Meldrum, Red Symons, Sam Newman, Trevor Marmalade, Lou Richards, John Blackman, Jennifer Keyte, Max Walker, Martin King, Tim Ferguson, Pete Smith and Wilbur Wilde.
I assume this was the entire workforce of Channel 9 Melbourne back in the day? I wonder if the same photo were to be taken today of the current staff, how smaller it would be considering the substantial cutbacks over the years?

Interesting that the original 9 logo looks more fresh and contemporary than the current boxy 9 used since the 70s.
It looked good in the 70s.
I agree with Hitch…
The 9 in a box without the dots wasn’t good.
Why mess with the winning formula?
