That’s when GWN’s presentation was at its best. Done locally out of Bunbury.

These promo enders were great. I’m pretty sure these were introduced when GWN went with full Seven affiliation, but before Prime centralised operations to Canberra. What an insult; to go from these stylish Seven inspired enders to the those old fashioned blue/yellow ones from Prime!

These were capped days before WIN WA launched! Burning through some Nine movies before losing them for good.

So, GWN must have switched to Seven News/TT, and using Seven’s promo style, before they lost Nine and Ten affiliation. I thought they made the switch closer to WIN’s launch.

The 80’s and 90’s was the absolute zenith for the Golden West Network. Presentation was slick, news was comprehensive and commitment to localism was second to none.

I agree, but this era was special. It was the first time the presentation (other than idents) resembled a metro network. Seeing GWN gearing up for WIN’s arrival was exciting to watch. I remember print ads running for weeks and I reckon by the time these caps were recorded to VHS, WIN had already fired up their pre-launch loop in a lot of areas.
