Saturday (26.01.2019) - Sunday (27.01.2019): Samantha Heathwood is presenting in Brisbane this weekend with Ebony Cavallaro on weather. Jonathan Uptin is still presenting sport from Melbourne Park.


#4840

What’s the go in QLD with Heathwood presenting non stop? Is there nobody else there? I’m not up with the team up north but I don’t think we’d get Alicia that many in a row down this way!


#4841

Well we basically have four presenters- Andrew Lofthouse and Melissa Downes weeknights and Jonathan Uptin on weekends. Sam Heathwood is brought in to fill-in for Jono. Unlike GTV, we don’t have any talented reporters (apart from Wendy Kingston) waiting in the wings.

This was the first summer in years, that they didn’t have Darren Curtis to present over Christmas and New Year; so that is probably why you are noticing Sam so much.

Andrew returned solo to weeknights last week with Sam doing weekends. Jono (who is also Brisbane’s sports editor) has been filling in on sport. I imagine that it will be back to normal from tomorrow.

Not sure where she’s heading off to next though.


#4844

Monday -
Sophie Walsh is presenting Morning News & Sydney Afternoon News.
Local Afternoon News bulletins are returning today.


#4845

She still filed at least one report on tonight’s bulletin…unless it was already in the can prior to the weekend:

Over 1 year now since Michael Thompson took over from Tim and Emmy on Nine News Perth. Probably the worst decision they ever made and ratings have remained the same/ gotten worse on days. They seem to be exceptionally low even with the help of the Aus Open.
