A spokesperson for the regional network said, “WIN merely wants to provide entertainment to its viewers and in doing so removed The Mint.”
Last year during a battle over revenue and a bidding war for the Nine affiliate in Perth, WIN exerted some muscle by dropping both The Catch-Up and Mornings with Kerri-Anne from its schedule.
It reinstated Kerri-Anne last week, screening the chat show from 12 midday.
But The Mint has now lost a large portion of its regional audience, and therefore, its income stream.
In many areas it has been replaced by WIN News and a repeat of the Ellen De Generes Show. It remains on air in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
Comment was sought from the Nine Network.
