Good to see a return to Late News last night on the Nine Network. Presenter Wendy Kingston read the first 11:30pm bulletin with Jaynie Seal doing weather.
Slated one hour after TEN’s is a sensible time for those who have been out and missed TEN’s version.
Last year Nine dropped Nightline after 15 years, due to cost cutting. Its last episode was also hosted by Kingston.Despite the name change it was hard to discern one show from another (see photo).
Nine is now looking to re-build its News brand with plans for a new Sydney set and the extension of the 11am Morning News to 12pm.
A Saturday edition of the Today show, which was a surprise to many, will continue weekends from 7 – 9am.
“Put simply, in an age where fast and accurate news is supreme, Nine will be producing more quality news content than ever before in its history,” David Gyngell said.
