#5600

Is this the first year Sandra hasn’t actually gone to South Africa to present the jungle “bulletin”?


#5601

Yes


#5602

Promo for tomorrow night, this got a mention at the end of the Queensland late news update tonight as well.


#5603

Another exclusive


#5604

Saturday 2nd March 2019

Due to coverage of Supercars Adelaide 500, 10 News First will be shown on 10Bold in most markets.


#5605

so in every market except Perth I gather.


#5606

Better than what they previously did, but could the push the news back past 6pm?

It’s not like there’s anything programmed on Saturday nights.


#5607

It couldn’t start until 7.30pm in Sydney and Melbourne.


#5608

Nightly network exclusives being promoted of late, it’s definitey a start.


#5609

The feature story was also mentioned as part of the News Update last night in Sydney.

#5612

Dates. Times.


#5613

If there actually is going to be a relaunch, my predictions:

I’m guessing this is going to be the big one.

  • New set for Sydney
  • Maybe a slight graphics refresh (less white)
  • With the end of Pointless coming, perhaps some sort of expansion of the news service into mornings and possibly 6PM (?)
  • As @lexington has mentioned previously, they are slowly rolling out updated equipment, so I’m going to assume they will do the Nine News styled relaunch where each state was slowly updated to HD and a new set

Am I right about any of this? Or am I overthinking it? :stuck_out_tongue:


#5616

We alluded to this tweak when News First launched.

I think only Sydney at this stage.


#5618

Even just getting a completely new set for Sydney would be good, since we’ve got the oldest one of all Network Ten stations (and metropolitan Australian television in general, I think).
