I would say Mike is on annual leave.
Are you suggesting they should replace Mitch, when he is currently dominating at 6pm?
He might not be, but I sure would be.
Put Bec solo in the chair at 6pm. Andrew McCormack on sport and bring Brownie back for weather.
Cue the hate.
I think the days of replacing and dumping talent due to ratings are over. Television ratings and news ratings more specifically are that low these days it really doesn’t matter who is presenting. The FTA news ratings are also going to get even lower due to the exodus of viewers. Look at the breakfast tv ratings this year.
Jane Bunn is well established in Brownie’s old role and can stay as long as she likes in my view.
Tim Watson, also well established and has been on weeknights or weekends for a long time, there is no point moving him.
And Mitch will be able to be there until he retires I’d suggest. Once Hitch goes from 9, Mitch will be the most experienced face fronting Melbourne news.
I think this would work. Bec is a brilliant reader
Angela Cox is on holidays which explains why Michael is presenting solo in Sydney this week.
Wednesday 22 June -
Blake Johnson is presenting Afternoon News in Melbourne again today.
I assume Mark Ferugson would also be away for the week, taking a well-deserved break.
I second this. There’s simply no other explanation for why some pretty ‘average’ presenters (for want of a better term) seem to remain in the top job for years these days
Friday 24 June -
Chris Reason is presenting 4pm & 6pm News in Sydney.
Saturday 25 June -
Elspeth Hussey is presenting 5pm News from Adelaide with Matt Shirvington presenting sport from Sydney and Amelia Mulcahy presenting national weather.
Rebecca Maddern is presenting solo in Melbourne this weekend.
Saturday (25.06.2022) - Sunday (26.06.2022): Steve Titmus is presenting in Brisbane this weekend, for the first time.
From the Brisbane studio or still on the Gold Coast?
He actually lives in Brisbane.
I guess now that Adelaide is HD they’ll be willing to use them nationally when required.
No on the Gold Coast work with 7 Gold Coast News
Probably not best to make a comment on something you don’t know.
