A curious job ad from WIN Television

I was intrigued by this job ad on Seek the other day

Job Advertisement

In particular this bit:

This newly created role is dedicated to both the State and Federal Politics rounds.

This makes me wonder if WIN are planning on increasing the scope of their news operations, possibly dumping Nine News in favour of producing their own all encompassing local/national/international bulletins similar to the way ABC TV handles local news in Canberra or the way Ten Capital used to produce an hour-long local/national/international bulletin instead of broadcasting Sydney’s Ten News.

If they do, it will be interesting to see if they can rate better or do a better job than Nine News. It would, in Canberra at least, provide a locally-focussed alternative to the Sydney-centric 6pm bulletins.

    Absolutely appalling!

    Whoever wrote that ad should be sent packing, along with the person who proofread it.

    For a supposedly reputable media organisation to publish an advertisement with NINE grammatical errors, is unforgivable, and an indictment on how standards have slipped in relation to the written word.

    So, yes, that ad intrigued me, too, Samuel – but I guess not for the same reasons!

    I didn’t notice that…and my nerves always get the better of me when you start talking about grammar.

    On the other hand, with WIN being, for the most part, a relay of Nine, perhaps the number of errors was intentional.
