Amazing! Working where i do, a lot of press releases and intersting emails cross my path on the way up to the management upstairs. Personally, this one left me shocked and astounded. Righto, prepare for the backlash:
“In Light of recent events, channel 9 has decided to cease broadcasting local news in the canberra and south coast regions. Furthermore, we will be filling the timeslot with “a current affair” until further notice. Over the past months there has been a large dip in ratings which in turn, has forced our hand. Our sincere apologies to those who relied on this service, but there will be alternatives in programming investigated in the not too distant future.”
Lots more text is attached to this and i’ll pdf it asap.
