Sydney sport from the Cricket Awards
Rick Ardon presented national news update from Perth tonight.
(It’s obviously pre-recorded because he is still presenting the Perth bulletin at the moment due to three hour time difference)
Adelaide version of the promos that were rolled out to the other markets at the end of last year. I believe that Adelaide never got one at the time, because Jane was about to retire, and presumably they didn’t want to run one until she left:
A new “know the news “ promo was shown in Perth during H/A.
Weird, Adelaide didn’t bother for a 90-second one. Not sure why, but nevermind.
With the recent retirements of Pat Welsh and Wally Lewis in Brisbane, 7 have started to raise the profile of Shane Webcke.
A special sports promo of him “leading the most experienced sports team” is running, and he’s now featured on the end board with Sharyn and Max.
New “inside league” translation used during the news, the same as featured on the news promo about Shane Webcke. .
It’d have more to do with Nine losing their footy ‘expert’ than Pat leaving. After 15 years, Webcke is finally an advantage for something. So, it’s certainly a ploy by Seven but I feel the endtag is weird without Tony there too.
Perth had 2 examples of standing presentations last night. The angle we have seen a bit lately and a shot I have never seen before.
The second one was posted a few posts above
Wonder why they didn’t recreate the team photo as seen in the other states?
They did do a photoshoot on the News set, they just didn’t use it in the promo, presumably because Jane’s in it and she’s since retired.
No kidding, I mean why not do it with the new anchors? Some big faces missing there too… like Mike.
Agreed, missing Will as well. Pretty sure he was at Seven when they took that photo.
7 still without a news crew on Norfolk Island to cover the cyclone by the looks of it. Their stories tonight were made up of voice graphics, zoom interviews and phone vision. 9 seem to be having a field day crossing to their crews on the ground, and using the exclusive strap. Very poor planning from 7.
Or maybe they just didn’t think it’s a significant story and instead prefers to cover the latest hoots in Sydney doing the rounds
Given it was their leading story, i’ld say otherwise. A blunder decision from 7.
