Okay okay. I might be overthinking this but are we in for a reboot of Newshub in 2020? Been seeing a lot of posts done by Newshub with at the end #newshubreboot
Are they hinting something? Or am I just being a clown and overthinking the situation like I always do lol

I think they’re just posting their top stories of 2019.

True. Why would they choose the word reboot though, doesn’t really make sense… Something like “repost” would make muchhh more sense… Oh well, Newshub is in need of a “reboot” anyway. Especially with the elections next year.

I agree that “reboot” isn’t the best choice of words but I can’t see them doing any relaunches while their ownership is up in the air.

I’d like to see a ‘reboot’ too but guessing it’ll probably be left to whoever takes over to make make some changes… Hopefully a full reboot with the whole channel in mind - similar to 10 Aus rebrand

Edit… you’re too quick for me @OnAir :laughing:

Not gonna happen any time soon from what I’ve seen sorry.

Uh no thanks. Sorry but don’t really like Lucy presenting the 6pm news. Turned over to Jenny Suo on 1…
I reakon it was a real waste of talent what Mediaworks did with Jenny Suo. Oh well, Mediaworks lose is TVNZ’s gain!

Lucy’s delivery reminds me of Catriona McLeod or Katrina Batten on RNZ National… just relax and let them tell you the news.
It’s an old school type of classy.

Hmm yeah, I do agree. But unfortunately I don’t think Mediaworks have the capability to get in new presenters. I think it’s safe to say Duncan’s seat will stay warm for a while to come…
