WIN shows you the news, then the CT tells you about it

By johnboy - 23 January 2009 27

Now here’s a peculiar thing.

WIN News have added a segment (meaning they’ve bumped either an ad or their own content) wherein the Canberra Times tells you about things that are going to be in the paper tomorrow.

I’d be fascinated to hear which way, if at all, the dollars are flowing on this deal.

What’s Your opinion?

i think its a case of the CT paying WIN money to get people to buy their crappy newspaper.

not working!

I suppose its a way for WIN to pad out its 5-10 mins of useful news to a 30 min show. Can’t say I’ve noticed it, must have tuned out while it was on.

Some symmetry there though – WIN is 5-10 mins padded out to 30, and the CT is 1-2 pages of useful news padded out to a lot more than that. (Actually how thick is the CT, its been years since I’ve bought one – I hardly even bother looking at it online).

I’d personally prefer to see the RiotACT give a run-down each night.

Except we don’t know what we’re going to publish tomorrow.

They’ve been doing this in Tassie for quite a while (couple of years perhaps?) with the Mercury paper.

Eliot Goblet has a brother?

He needs something like a very large flower in his lapel.

That’s why John whosiwhatsit is a print journo and not supposed to be on TV.

Was that delivery FLAT or what? It reminded me of an awkward and shy year 9 student giving their “required for asessment” oral presentation.

Well, talk about a spoiler! Half the fun of the morning paper is the surprise value ….

Oh great so nothing exciting in tomorrows paper, so no point getting it!

THANKYOU!!! Sleep in….

There is a term for this in the newspaper business: waving the white flag.

Is there anything more annoying than WIN News when you know the cricket has re-started?

Possibly, but I have yet to experience it.

I don’t think there is.

Even worse when it’s a slow news day.

As for the CT segment – pointless!

I’d have thought Jessica was paid good money for her column… That’s normally the way of these arrangements…

But having read the column I can see they might do it differently…

I saw this segment last week while waiting for the cricket to come back on and it struck me as a bit odd. Perhaps there is an arrangement whereby Jessica Good gets editorial space in the CT.
