In the excitement of Upfronts, Nine has had to amend its copy twice, once for a Nine News statement and another surrounding the AFL Footy Show.
Nine issued a press release with confusing references to Nine as being “No.1” for news and current affairs. The detail in the copy noted Nine News is winning on the East Coast cities of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. But the release heading suggesting “Your No. 1” for News, which is fancy consumer-speak, was contrasted by the outright claim online “Nine is No. 1” in News & Current Affairs.
It has hurriedly made a switcheroo on that point today.
Meanwhile an Upfronts release on 2019 Sports shows failed to mention the AFL Footy Show.
But after enquiries began trickling into Nine it reissued the list with the show hastily added, but failing to confirm the talent. Sources suggest Nine will have an AFL show… of some sort…
The AFL Footy Show
The AFL Footy Show is home to the biggest stories in the world of AFL, hosted by champions of the game and bringing in-depth discussions on the week in footy, and a whole lot of laughs.
