The Illawarra Mercury is displeased that moving Canberra’s news bulletin to Wollongong has bumped the Wooly news to an earlier pre-record.
Wollongong no longer has a live TV news broadcast after WIN Television began pre-recording its Illawarra bulletin.
The move comes after the television station announced two weeks ago that it would produce its Canberra bulletin at the company’s Mount Saint Thomas headquarters.
The Canberra news is read live at 6.30pm by Wollongong presenters Kerryn Johnston and Amy Duggan. As a result, Wollongong’s bulletin has been pre-recorded about 5pm since last Monday.
