Tomorrow Nine’s Peter Overton, Peter Harvey, Mark Burrows, Deborah Knight, Peter Stefanovic and Ken Sutcliffe will participate in a Q&A with viewers live online.
As Nine says, “Viewers will be able to ask anything they’ve ever wanted to know about the making of TV News. We’ll also take you on a live behind the scenes tour of Channel 9, tell some tall tales about news gathering and have a bit of fun along the way.”
Questions can be posted at www.facebook.com/9NEWS or by using the hash tag #9STREAM on Twitter. Links to the video stream will be provided on the night on Facebook and the @9NewsSyd twitter account.
Nine has hosted a number of these livestreams before, although not for some time.
