As you pointed out during last night’s tweets, the female presenter of that Local Market & Weather Report was Celina Edmonds…who of course would later go onto bigger and better things.

Meanwhile it’s to the best of my understanding that the male presenter of those News Updates is the late Peter Andren, who after his time at Prime became a rather popular independent MP for the federal electorate of Calare (which takes in part of the Prime Central West viewing area) and was going to contest a NSW Senate seat in 2007 but had to withdraw after his diagnosis with pancreatic cancer. Seems like he was an admirable fellow.

Yep, that’s the late Peter Andren. Peter actually left Prime to run in the '96 election, and was replaced by Helen Browne (now Clare)

What was that report about Burger King?

It was about their Shellharbour store opening, a classic “You know you’re watching regional news when…” story! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Sadly, Burger King would leave Australia in 2002.

And became Hungry Jacks, IIRC

I remember there used to be a Burger King at Melbourne Airport.

I remember that. Didn’t last long though.
