Nine News Content and Appearance


#2714

Realistically, I think Nine News’ current sets & graphics would’ve been many months (possibly even a year or more) in the planning.

Over the coming weeks and months, I’d probably expect to see more tweaking and fine-tuning. The On-Air Presentation of Nine News we’ll see in mid-2017 will be very different to the On-Air Presentation of Nine News we saw in mid-2016.


#2715

On the note of tweaks, I noticed during Nine News Melbourne tonight that they have slightly altered the angles when using the screen for graphics. It’s zoomed out a bit more so you can just see above the screen, making it look less like a green screen.


#2716

The only reason they single out WA is because WA shows 9 News Now live at 12pm, and moves onto other programming at 1pm, while all other states continue with 9 News in one form or another.


#2717

Fair enough, their delivery of it was sloppy that’s all. Maybe a one off


#2718

I think its a bit stupid that Perth get to watch Nine News Now before Adelaide and Brisbane which show it on delay. Why don’t they just show it live everywhere?


#2720

Not missing much apart from a few wardrobe malfunctions.


#2721

That’s what Perth needs.

News First at 12 (or 1 when not DST).


#2722

I completely agree.

It would be a news overload, but I always envisioned that if they showed Nine News Now live, it would be on at 2pm, the “national” afternoon news at 3pm and the QLD version of the afternoon news at 4pm.


#2723

As suggested, some caps of tonight’s Nine News Sydney. The first bulletin for Georgie Gardner (and Tim Gilbert too I think, obviously Belinda’s first from this set was last Friday) in the new set:



#2724

Congrats to @SydneyCityTV for beating me to cap! Here are some of my caps of GG’s first bulletin on the new set (apologies for the quality as my internet isn’t as good as it can be)


#2725

Warning to especially female newsreaders at Nine Sydney - don’t wear red!


#2726

Not sure what the issue is, it’s good that it is live. Especially it’s a chat panel newsy type show.
A movie airs between 2pm and 4pm - (occupying hte 3pm original slot for Nine News Now). Which then straights into the 4pm local news. It’s a good break between news to be honest.


#2727

First at 5:


#2728

Seven’s 5pm news in comparison (BTW I absolutely hate Seven’s globe)


#2729

The only thing that lets that set down is the desk front. Should have fitted a custom made screen that extends to the edges of the space left for the screen, or made the desk shorter. The white (and red when breaking news) sections make it look unfinished.


#2730

Melbourne closer. Live shot appears blurry.


#2731

You would be forgiven if you thought Melbourne looked like Mt Everest tonight.


#2732

Still looks better than Perth’s painted backdrop.


#2733

Yes indeed !!
A live shot - No matter how miserable the whether - is ALWAYS preferable to any photo, video loop or painted backdrop IMO. I hate seeing a background of a fine sunny afternoon/evening when it’s dark or raining outside. I would rather see it ‘as it is’ on the day.


#2734

Melbourne looking positively HK-esque in that shot.
