#224

The latest addition to the SCA team, Grace Fitzgibbon, who presents the updates across Southern Queensland, Tasmania and Remote Australia.


#225

Probably the best presenter they have IMO, the content in my limited knowledge seems to be better than what has been posted in here before. But my god that theme music is terrible, get rid of it now.


#226

Grace Fitzgibbon is a thousand times better than that woman who reads the Central QLD updates.


#227

SCA really need to get permission from Nine to use Nine News’ actual graphics and music!

Judging by the clip, Grace Fitzgibbon is quite a decent newsreader and definitely one of the better “SCA News Update” presenters.


#228

One would assume 9 said ‘No’ already.


#229

Nine’s package is probably too much for SCA’s equipment to handle anyway.


#230

It’s actually quite a good on air team at the moment, apart from the North Queensland updates. Probably the best they’ve had for a while.


Victoria Update with Caitlin Knight


North Queensland Update with Sarah Bannerman


Southern NSW Update with Aggie Bradshaw


Northern NSW Update with Emma Larouche


#231

What baffles me is that the Coffs Harbour update has a proper titlecard. :stuck_out_tongue:


#232

different affiliate, different agreement.


#233

Still no Eyewitness News theme though :stuck_out_tongue:


#234

SCA’s current “Local News Headlines” theme music sounds exactly like what a comedy show would use as the “theme music” for skits parodying Ten Eyewitness News IMO! :stuck_out_tongue:


#235

Southern Cross News getting some viral attention…


#236

Oh. I thought it was a skit. My bad :o

Just a shame they only have “those” pathetic ‘headline updates’ to work with. Would be great to see them present a proper bulletin in the future.

#239

Yeah and I have no doubt that is correct. The actual equipment that they use to broadcast the bulletin is analogue however.
The picture quality is adequate but you can see the flickering and chasing lines/dots on scenes. Especially with horizontal lines and such that are part of the graphics.


#240

cough the computers must be running XP!


#241

Here’s a montage of Friday’s South Australian bulletin. It includes all story introductions along with examples of reporter signoffs, piece to camera reports (including the backwards basketball shot that has gone viral,) graphics etc.

Tim Hatfield has been away this week so Sam Hunt is filling in.


#242

I did say “mostly” didn’t I. :wink:


#243

Tim Hatfield is back from leave and presenting Southern Cross News SA tonight.
