That was my fear when I first saw the noodle updates.


#1596

Change just occurred for the Facebook page too…

Too early to declare tonight a RELAUNCH!!!111!!!


#1597


#1598

Their Facebook Page has also been changed. Guess that Southern Cross Tasmania is reviving the Nightly News brand.


#1599

Argh. They really should just stick with Southern Cross News.


#1600

It’s ridiculous that Seven didn’t want SCA to use the name “7 News Tasmania”. Would’ve been perfect otherwise.


#1601

Email has changed to 7tasnews@sca.com.au now. No change to profile picture.


#1602

If you ask me that is different enough to identify if 7News was concerned about the control of output.


#1603

Maybe Tasmanian News Bulletin - to compliment Darwin News Update lol


#1604

Clearly not ridiculous to Seven.


#1605

Betting that the SA bulletin will become Local News 7 SA (or whatever location identifyer they decide to use). “Nightly News” might be better because it would somewhat unify the brand, but they’re also two different formats (composite vs. full local).

Might they finally move the SA bulletin to Tasmania as well? The noodle updates have already scored a significant visual upgrade as a result. Hobart’s even got a downsized Launceston set they could consider reading live. Spin it into a mini-celebration for GTS/BKN’s 50 years of broadcasting.


#1606

Would have much preferred “7 Tasmania News” with a different font/design to satisfy Seven. Even “7 Tasmania Nightly News”


#1607

Hello officer, I’d like to report a crime:

:nauseated_face:


#1608

It’s the mismatched fonts, isn’t it? :hushed:


#1609

All they’d need to do is move that 7 Tasmania to above and it would look, read and sound so much better than that.


#1610

I agree.
7 Tasmania Nightly News would be SOO much better than Nightly News 7 Tasmania.

It’s going to sound ridiculous on air hearing reporters sign off with that


#1611

I’m wondering if they’ll just sign off with “Nightly News”, using that as the unifying brand instead.

I’d actually like the opening V/Os to go something like:

Tasmania, this is your Nightly News. Live from Launceston, with Jo Palmer.
Spencer Gulf, this is your Nightly News. Live, with Abby Donaldson.

Edit: I know that the SA bulletin is pre-recorded. “Live” is wishful thinking once they move production to Hobart (or Launceston).


#1612

They won’t acknowledge Launceston. They might say the 7 Tasmania headquarters.

A shame they are ditching the current look, it was the most polished and refined package Southern Cross News Tasmania ever had imo! :fearful:


#1614

The graphical look in that pic is basically Seven News-esque in all but the absolutely horrendous name, isn’t it?
