EXCLUSIVE: A number of camera operators at TCN9 are being made redundant as the network moves to its new home in North Sydney.
Nine studios in the new North Sydney headquarters are evidence of increasing automation in the industry and the broadcaster is consulting with camera operators on redundancy. Shows regularly produced at the historic Willoughby site largely comprise Nine News, Today, Today Extra, A Current Affair, 60 Minutes and various Sport programs.
TV Tonight understands the number of affected roles is less than 10, but Nine is not alone in the transition to automation, which has been impacting camera departments for years.
It will mark the end of an era when the network completes its shift to North Sydney next month.
Nine declined to comment.
