Exactly this, especially considering it seems like they struggled to even get the likes of local radio talent (I guess radio is networked these days there isn’t much of it left like the old days) to turn up this year to plug the gaps across the 26 hours.

Promo for the 2019 event was posted yesterday on Telethon Facebook page. The 3 minute video includes cameos by former foreign minister Julie Bishop, WA Premier Mark McGowan, two-time Brownlow medallist Nat Fyfe and some of his Fremantle teammates (not sure why West Coast Eagles players were not involved), cricketers Mitchell and Shaun Marsh and father Geoff.

That pretty cool. But couldn’t seven have added it to the seven plus… as a special live feed for interstate viewers?
