triple j had it at the 3pm news, some 10 minutes after it was announced.
ABC NEWS Channel Broke the news at the top of their 3pm bulletin. Breaking News super left on channel, replacing nursing home fire breaking news.
It was at the top of the show:
Tom Elliott just mumbling and fighting with callers about ‘Fracking’
Sad loss. Will be interesting to see if this leads the bulletins?
His death is not top story on Ten News in Melbourne.
We had a nursing home fire in Melbourne as the top story
Edit- third story on Ten tonight
It’s the same in Sydney, in which the top story was the hit & run of a 6-year old girl at Smithfield. The Hawking death story didn’t came on until 5:10pm.
Was top story on both TVNZ1 and Newshub at 6 over in NZ.
Oh my God what the fuck Nine.
I spent the whole day walking around outside interviewing people for an article and not once did I think it was abnormally windy.
Not on Seven News Sydney, in which a local story involving drug & ice, as well as general crime statistics, was the top story. It was instead the 2nd story.
Over on Nine, it was the top story.
What a sad loss. What an amazing life Stephen Hawking led.
Nine News story.
I don’t remember this scene. Stephen Hawking, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton and Data play poker on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
I wonder if there will be any special screenings of other programs Hawking appeared in, like The Big Bang Theory and The Simpsons.
