WIN News to be cancelled?

By papadoc 2 April 2008 48

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.

Sorry!

Damnit! Why would you get my hopes up like that? Hearing WIN news was to be cancelled was the best news I’d heard all day (haven’t had any respect for that pile of crap since they got Stanhope to do a namedrop ad for them a couple of months back).

At least this April Fools prank was better (only just…) than the MIX106.3 one that wasn’t one.
