Long-running music show Video Hits became the latest title to be added to TEN’s potential casualty list yesterday.
Several media outlets have already reported the show is gone.
Yesterday a TEN spokesperson told TV Tonight that no shows had yet been axed.
But redundancies that have been offered to staff may ultimately prove to be a red letter day for shows including Sports Tonight, TEN Late News and TEN Evening News on Sunday.
6:30 with George Negus is expected to stay until the end of the year, but there are reports Negus could be replaced by Hamish MacDonald or Hugh Riminton if the show itself is kept. A rise in ratings would secure the show.
Sandra Sully is expected to remain with the network.
TEN is currently looking for expressions of interest in voluntary redundancies – applications are due by July 13, with the company looking to complete the process within three weeks.
