Not something to be proud of.
Isn’t that pretty much every commercial network here (OK, 10 to a lesser extent)?
I think Nine and Seven would actually spend millions promoting their news services (especially in the big ticket markets of Sydney and Melbourne), with the others spending considerably less but still some - the public broadcasters of course likely to focus most of their news promotional efforts on their own TV & radio networks.
Up until relatively recently, the promotional efforts of most regional news services rivaled Ten’s!
Madeline Slattery looks to have replaced Justine Conway as Nine News Melbourne’s weekend weather presenter. Good move!
Wednesday 25 March & Thursday 26 March-
Brett McLeod presented Afternoon News in Melbourne.
Friday 27 March-
Dougal Beatty is presenting Afternoon News in Melbourne.
No, but its staff do:
(Edit: I realise you already made this point but I’m still staggered at how Uhlmann continues to be so obtuse)
Madeline took over from Justine in early February when Justine went on holidays.
Justine returned from holidays at the end of February and continues to be a reporter,she removed reference to being 9 news weather presenter from her Twitter 2 or 3 weeks ago.
Monday 30 March-
Mark Burrows is presenting Morning News and Afternoon News in Sydney.
At the risk of being hammered by SydneyCityTV, I think Mark’s presenting skills have improved a lot. Much more natural and less unnecessary pauses.
Georgie Gardner is presenting in Sydney tonight.
Being Peter Hitchener is 74 years old, should he not be self-isolating?
Where’s Peter Overton?
Good question. I’d think that he is either:
- only presenting the Late News tonight, or
- looking after his two daughters at home.
It is not mandatory, only advised for social activities. If he wants to and is able to work, he can.
Also only if he’s got other underlying illness(es)
- Maybe he’s sick. Bad Indian food last night?
- His mother’s birthday, and they’re having a dinner party via Zoom?
- Could have had car troubles and not wanted to get in an Uber?
Like it could be anything, no conspiracy, people have days off.
Jess cooking again maybe?
Plus this evenings late news
Georgie is again presenting in Sydney tonight and possibly the rest of this week.
