Ten News First Content and Appearance


#5252

The News First look compliments the Melbourne set far nicer than the Eyewitness News look ever did. The wide shot of the LHS screen is especially nice.

Love that news theme music…f#$king great!


#5254

6pm!? Holy shit they’re thinking! :thinking:


#5255

And another local bulletin tonight:


#5256

Looks great. Ten have the right talent to launch 6PM local news.


#5257

Georgia Love could read the news on weekends permanently in Melbourne with Caty Price on sport. They have some depth in the Melbourne news room.


#5258

I agree, they could easily re-instate local news at 6pm on weekends.


#5259

That is not really fair to the more experienced and competent anchors in Melbourne- Candice Wyatt, Nick Etchells, Yasmin Paton- who deserve the role more.

It would be more wise to have local news at 5pm (just like weeknights), when they don’t have the big competitors against them.


#5260

It was just an example to show that ten have the depth down in Melbourne.


#5261

Has someone challenged you to use the word “depth” as much as you can today?


#5262

ya’ll know they tried 6pm local on weekends right?


#5263

This 6PM news thing is mentioned at least once a week and is starting to get really irritating and repetitive.


#5264

It’s not going to happenz. Let it go.


#5265

Perhaps if you keep reiterating something like one does to a child, the might learn a thing or two and heed some advice as opposed to having their heads up their backsides?

Just a thought.


#5266

But it happened this weekend!!!
Local 6PM bulletins confirmed??!


#5267

Nine Melbourne had a 30 minute news bulletin on Saturday. Confirmed that Nine is cutting Saturday news back to 30 minutes! (Of course not).


#5268

Oddly enough, they also seemed to trial political news until 10PM on the same night with a panel of 6. This might be their new compeditive edge?


#5269

No. Let it go


#5270

Yeah, and it got higher ratings than what they get now.
