APEC Should Have Been Held In Canberra Chaser’s APEC Stunt

WIN News Pushed Back to 6:30

September 6th, 2007 at 06:30pm

WIN Television in Canberra have made a strange decision tonight to swap the broadcast times of their two news bulletins. Instead of having WIN local news at 6pm and Nine News from Sydney at 6:30, they are running Nine News at 6pm and WIN News at 6:30.

Apparently this is so that Canberrans can get all the APEC news half an hour earlier than they otherwise would have, although if that is the case, I can’t understand why they didn’t make the decision yesterday.

I think WIN have made a mistake with this decision, as I think a lot of people would have tuned out when they discovered Nine News in the place of the local bulletin. Many people may have come to the false conclusion that WIN have dumped local news, something the other commercial stations in Canberra did a few years ago.

    I might add to this one and say that it is not just WIN Canberra who has done this, it is happening on all of their stations around Eastern Australia.

    I disagree with their viewpoint as well, because we would rather hear of some regional news than crap about APEC which we have been drilled with throughout the day via Radio, Print and maybe even Television.

    While they are at it, I hope they get rid of the late night replay of the 6pm news and replace it with the live broadcast of Nightline out of Sydney.

    Nightline is at least live, and so the main stories are often updated (the rest are just replays of 6pm). I just think it is a waste to rebroadcast a program which nobody watched the first time anyway.

    * Awaiting the grenades!!! 🙂
