Nine News Content and Appearance


#2756

There was (another) automation glitch at the start of the Sport news in Sydney, with Cameron Williams’s intro accompanied by a black screen (with the 9 News watermark and nothing else) for 5 seconds, then a split second zoomed out shot of Peter Overton before the correct angle of Cameron appeared.

Hey 7News - start doing this and utilise your screens!


#2761

Ugh Nine why are you so pretty? All commercial and shit, yet gorgeous presentation.


#2762

Has there been any news on Brisbane or Adelaide receiving new sets?


#2763

The headlines were also presented from the desk tonight in Sydney.


#2764

Tonight’s gaff:

Spoke too soon:

It was NOT a good start to the bulletin, was it…

I feared for a minute we weren’t going to see coverage of the record breaking heat and being resigned to Melbourne news.

Fortunately things have gone reasonably smoothly since.


#2766

None that I’ve heard as of yet


#2767

Maybe it was too hot for the gear to run properly


#2768

I’m starting to think staff are deliberately programming errors in an attempt to get the bosses to revert on the automation decision :smirk:

I dont understand how 9 sydney can have so many on air fuck ups with mosart! Either they dont have qualified people entering info in ENPS, mosart “pilots” (ex directors) that dont want it to work or a really bad illegal downloaded version of mosart :joy:

Either that or a desperate attempt by Nine’s marketing department to go viral.

“WOW! You won’t believe what happens when the screens go black!”

“LOL! I can’t believe he actually said that when the lights went off!”

“You won’t believe how this newsreader reacts when the cameras take over!”

The millennials will come flocking to see what happens next. Event television at its best, maybe they could replace ACA with a new companion show at 7pm with live reaction and a recap of the hour’s best fuck-ups?


#2771

Slight change to the ‘Bushfire Emergency’ graphic.


#2772

The system really doesn’t like playing Lizzie Pearl’s reports:


#2773

Gold Coast News received the new headline graphics last Tuesday - only just noticed!


#2774

Technical issue number 1476


#2775

These kind of stuff ups with automation is happening almost nightly.

It is starting to cause damage to the Nine News brand, one that has prided itself on reliability and experience.

It is not looking very reliable right now, and thus looks inexperienced as well.
