Discussion of Nine News Content and Appearance in Darwin

NTD isn’t really apart of the Regional or Metro format, should probably move to its own thread?

So no news for the time being about what’s happening in Darwin I presume?

Just keeping up with the noodle updates during the bulletin?

I’ve heard after the election, they can’t really stay under the current format forever.

It’s so out of place and doesn’t use network graphics at all.

Do they plan on election coverage to some extent?

Should know by tomorrow

Massive weekend on the 22nd anyway. Multiple national AFL games, Supercars, NT Election etc all at once in Darwin.

What is the point of waiting until after the election?

Channel 9 have different logic of things to us.

9 News Darwin doing updates on Territory FM live (could just do an audio booth feed but alright)

They are still openly promoting a 6:00PM dedicated bulletin in both promos and updates across all stations in Darwin.

Is that the early 2000s theme??? And the theme even ends before the update does!

Yes they still use it on the radio in Darwin, don’t mind it actually.

Neither - but nevertheless very weird to use something that hasn’t been heard on-air for almost 2 decades :confused:

And if that’s the case then I would say it’s fair to assume the noodle updates are staying.

NINE NEWS DARWIN TO HOST ELECTION NIGHT

From 6:00pm, Paul Taylor, Jonathan Uptin and Charles Croucher will host NT Decides.

It will start with a dedicated local bulletin then ongoing coverage from 7:00.

Wow - I’m pleasantly surprised! If only they did a dedicated local bulletin EVERY night at 6…

Been watching for ages!

It will be interesting to see how this will affect QTQ considering Jonathan Uptin is the weekend presenter.

Darwin will probably get shoved onto the regional set for the 6:00pm bulletin if it’s not done locally (since 6:00pm in NT is 6:30 in Queensland)

Great to have Jonathan and Charles together again.

Fantastic. Good to see some local NT coverage!
And a local bulletin!!

Could this in fact hint that Paul Taylor may present a weekday local bulletin soon? (Also given that he is seemingly absent from the new Nine News Local bulletin)

Nine will be heavily monitoring the performance of this coverage for future expansion of local news coverage in NT.

But it’s the start of something for Darwin.

Coverage will also be shown on Imparja as-well.
