    Great forward thinking by WIN. Now if they can get their local ( Hobart news read from who knows where miles away ) suburbs said correctly it would be an OK news service. At least it is local and the competing News on the other two staions is (a) a 30 minute bulletin repeated and (b) virtually non existent.

  2. WIN also works with the Uni of Wollongong to train students and give them hands-on experience in producing pieces locally and working with their network newsrooms, and experiencing and working on every aspect of a news bulletin from sourcing to shooting to editing to captioning to broadcast. It’s a boost for morale when an aunt phones from Cairns to say “OMG I just saw you on WIN News reporting that (national interest story)”. And WIN’s All Australian News is still the only commercial news program reporting on regions nationally. Count how many ‘big smoke’ network reporters started in regional newsrooms.
