I know that Ten has BBL cricket to air from 4pm until 11pm but would it really be that hard to have coverage on One while a news bulletin (even if it’s just 20 minutes long) is airing on the main channel? Or a short bulletin just before/after the coverage?
Seven and Nine usually keep their bulletins on nights they have sporting commitments (even if it has to air at an earlier/later time) and do you know why? Because it’s a massive opportunity to expose new viewers to the news service and to promote the news during the sporting coverage generally!
I’m not sure about everyone else, but Ten deciding not to air it’s news on many weekends due to sporting commitments actually discourages me from watching their news even on weeknights! For what it’s worth I think Ten do an OK job at their news but I for one can’t/won’t commit to a news service that’s on “when it feels like”! Thoughts?
