Today

I’ll say this much, at least the TODAY promo’s try to incorporate a little bit of humour in them.

Today show featured some City to Surf coverage, but significantly less than Sunrise. Richard Wilkins presented a well produced heavily promoted André Rieu exclusive , Rob McKnight gave some opinions and some Block contestants did a cross promotion for tonight’s episode.

8am breaking news this morning with some big sweeping shots, Ally standing behind Karl at the beginning. Looks unusual in the caps but seemed to work.


Countdown on giveaway.

A notable win to Today yesterday morning.

Not only are they doing different angles and story presentation, but now when crossing to reporters they simply say “good morning” instead of throwing with a question.

Now that’s impressive.

Update in the ratings area.

Small things like this, I like. I love it when someone says “Good morning to you at home” or similar as well, brings the viewers in.

is this ‘The Block’ factor?..TV left on Nine last night so ‘I wake up with Today!’

Agree with this. Makes the show feel a lot warmer and more welcoming.

Looks like NBC Nightly News.


I like it none the less.

I was actually watching at that time this morning and thought all the positions and angles looked awkward.

This morning Today did a similar 8am breaking news presentation, this time with Karl standing behind Ally. The transition wasn’t as smooth with Karl’s starting his part a second too soon and talking over Ally’s throw.

Worth noting that Today’s coverage of the Logan Motorway started at 5:30 AM with live crosses to people trapped in the traffic jam Sunrise didn’t cover the story until after 6:00 AM.

That looks very strange to me. Doesn’t look like it works. Is there a video?

It would work better if the camera panned in from the other side and did a clean sweep across the set rather than yo-yoing.

Yeah as I thought it looks extremely messy on air. Not the best idea unfortunately.

The colourful lights above the backdrop cheapen the set.

Nice work trying something new with the sweeping shot but don’t like seeing person standing behind the first talking presenter. Should just go straight to the presenter talking and cut the handover and sweep.

The custom made story backdrop is nice and like the walk and throw to reporter in the TV.

Hate the term live shot, live look, or live view. Just use a live wipe and if you must say something… right now or now.
