Immediately after reading the article in the paper (Speaking of which, where did they seem to get “2014 was the last time Seven News Sydney won the ratings battle against Nine” from?), I instantly thought “Media Spy will be whipped into a frenzy over this” and wasn’t proven wrong!
Kind of surprised that Chris Bath went with Ten though. As it’s already been pointed out, aren’t ABC News NSW possibly looking for a new Friday/Saturday presenter with Jeremy Fernandez moving over to the News Channel next year?
That said, I guess it may explain (at least partially) why we won’t see Bathie involved with the ABC’s NYE 2018 coverage. During October & November, I’d imagine that many people on this forum would’ve been wondering whether we’ll get a New Years Eve Bath after her role in the Invictus Games coverage!
I agree, although surely Lisa Wilkinson would most likely be the lead star of any Federal Election coverage from 10 News First? They’d be idiots not to build on Wilkinson’s experience of presenting election coverage for Nine IMO!
Indeed. As much as it pains me to say this, probably less than 100k Sydney viewers will watch Chris Bath present 10 News First on Saturday & Sunday nights.
Personally I think @HarbourSideTv would be even more excited than me!
Especially when it comes to their absolutely pathetic weather coverage (which yes, is even worse than Nine’s) but don’t get me started on that again…
This guy gets it. Ten might have Chris Bath, but Nine still have a whole stable of familiar faces (not just when it comes to the presenters, but reporters too) the other three main news services in Sydney should be envious of.
