NWS9 Adelaide returns to Nine stable
Nine CEO David Gyngell and Managing Director, Jeffrey Browne, met staff at NWS9 in Adelaide today.
CEO David Gyngell and Managing Director, Jeffrey Browne, arrived at NWS9’s Tynte Street studio this morning to meet staff.
“Nine has enjoyed a long association with Adelaide and South Australia through its affiliation with WIN and previous proprietors of NWS, and that relationship is about to become even stronger,” he said.
“We are on the threshold of an exciting new bond with our audience as we become hands-on proprietors of this great station as part of the Nine Network and its family.
“Nine’s success is built on its brief to inform and entertain, and reflect the aspirations and concerns of its community. It’s part of our DNA and it’s great that we can now build that rapport direct with our Adelaide audience.
“We celebrate and respect the long and rich history of NWS9, which we have been such an integral part of. Now it’s time to take it to the next level, and we look forward to our viewers joining us on the journey.”
“It’s a brilliant day for Nine and for Adelaide. The sun is shining on our venture and this is the beginning of a great partnership,” Browne said.
Nine has considerable building ahead in the challenge to the dominance of Seven in Adelaide but will remain involved with events such as the Credit Union Christmas Pageant and the Santos Tour Down Under, and various community initiatives.
Nine advises there will be no changes to transmission on Nine, GO! and Gem.
