Samuel’s Blog Weekly Poll: APEC Donating Blood

WIN News Permanently Moves to 6:30

September 10th, 2007 at 07:33am

You may recall that I reported last week that WIN Television pushed WIN News back to 6:30, and decided to take Nine News live at 6pm. At the time they were advertising it as an effort to provide the best live coverage of APEC.

Well, the weekend painted a different light on the situation. A look at any online TV guide shows WIN News has permanently moved to 6:30 just about everywhere, and even more interestingly, Nine and WIN announced that they had settled their ongoing syndication fee dispute on Friday, one day after their sudden change to the news. How it will affect WIN’s ratings is hard to say as WIN don’t broadcast in metro areas where ratings are actively reported.

The press release didn’t make any mention of WIN’s deal with Seven in South Australia, so I suppose we will have to wait until mid-October to see if they make the change to Seven programming. The only thing we can say for sure is WIN’s attack on Nine’s market share forced their hand.

It would also appear that the new deal between WIN and Nine may see the reintroduction of shows such as Mornings with Kerri-Anne to the WIN network. WIN removed Kerri-Anne from the network and replaced her with their own pre-recorded talk show “Susie” a couple months ago as part of the dispute.

    I’m sure that just about everyone who saw the promos for her show thought exactly the same thing Pen.

    Susie sounds like a real go-getter. I hate people like that.
