Discussion of media coverage of the latest developments.
Do we have a list of reporters from Australian networks
currently based in Ukraine?
ABC - Tom Joyner, Nick Dole
Seven - Geof Parry, Sarah Greenhalgh
Nine - Carrie-Anne Greenbank
SBS - Ben Lewis, Orla Guerin
Unsure who else.
I believe Tom Joyner from the ABC and 7 Europe correspondent Sarah Greenhalgh, and Ben Lewis from SBS.
ABC’s Nick Dole is also in Kviv (as shown on the screencap at the top of this thread).
How did tonight’s 6pm coverage go?
As much as people complain about 10 not having someone there: wouldn’t you rather the better coverage (from CBS reporters)? Embedded with troops! No other Aussies are anywhere near that!
Doesn’t 10 have Paul Gonzo there?
Yep, this could indeed be one way for 10’s news division to rebuild some credibility after the relentless cuts over the past 10 years- by harnessing the resources of CBS they could build a reputation as the ‘go-to’ Australian news source for global news with the best reporters in the best locations and perhaps use this as a launchpad for bolstering their domestic offering which is still very light-on especially compared to Seven, Nine and the ABC.
agreed. we don’t need the local reporters from 10 doing reports in other countries. Just use the CBS resources and journalists
Conflict has begun with Putin ordering a military operation
Probably too late for any media to get out now.
This will escalate fast as he has asked Ukraine to put the weapons down, or consequences will result. Ukraine have said yesterday they will fight and protect.
Seven have broken into programming with Breaking News.
