Channel Nine completed its three East Coast news studio makeovers yesterday when Brisbane presenter Andrew Lofthouse gained a new-look set.
The sleek look matches the Nine News sets in Sydney and Melbourne, which both underwent changes in preceding months.
As with other cities, it features plasma screens with a live city backdrop.
But it wasn’t the only change, with Lofthouse now reading the news solo.
Melissa Downes began maternity leave on Friday, while weekend presenter Heather Foord is on sick leave. A Nine spokeswoman said it is unknown yet when Foord will return to her duties.
Eva Milic will fill in for Foord before also taking maternity leave at the end of the year.
No word on changes for Adelaide and Perth newsrooms which are both under WIN management.
