National Nine News 2006-2008

This graphics package was a major overhaul for Nine’s news service. Done were they with their traditional globe motif in favour of a flying billboard flying through various city skylines.This is also the first time that Nine Gold Coast News uses the same style of opening and graphics as it’s capital city counterparts. Sets during this era became more noticeable as well, even if they still maintained a sense of simplicity, unlike what was happening on the other 2 commercial networks. In early 2007, the Queensland news desk was changed slightly to appear more like the Sydney desk, whereas Melbourne went out for something completely different. Changing their stylish glass top desk in favour of a wooden design and ditching their live shot in favour of a blue background with various imposed images of landmarks.

An example of National Nine News in 2006.


Various caps of National Nine News Perth - Sunday 7/1/2007:


Anyone know who the sports presenter is?

It looks like Bob Harnett.

Look at those Petrol prices.

Not sure what has happened to Wade’s initial post. Now a jumble of code.

You and me both and I’ve lost the original files too :confused:

Morning News 29/3/2006:


Nine News Melbourne changed their theme back to Cool Hand Luke a few weeks after viewer backlash from the remixed version which wasn’t liked by Melburnians

If anyone can find a video of NNN Melbourne using that theme it would be absolute gold.


…and that saw them take out the Melbourne news wars winning 24 weeks to Seven’s 16 weeks.


I’ve always wondered if that was true or not, or maybe it was because the news staff didn’t like it. I wonder what kind of complaints Nine received from viewers if there were any.

Taken via Channel 9 Perth on 14 January 2008

What is interesting was that instead of Perth’s Chris Brown’s voiceover intro, they had Ken Sparkes doing the vo for NNN Perth in 2008.

Hey Zampakid, when did National Nine News Adelaide launch their own graphics when the Cowbell themed music was still playing when it was launched on Monday January 30th 2006?
