From Monday February 6 Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) in conjunction with its affiliate partner the Nine Network will broadcast a dedicated Nine News Canberra bulletin to the nation’s capital.
The one-hour bulletins will be broadcast at 6pm each week night.
Presented by Vanessa O’Hanlon, the Canberra bulletin is the first in a series of Nine News regional bulletins to be rolled out in the coming months as part of one of the biggest expansions of news operations in Australia.
Local news-gathering staff, living and working in Canberra, with production and editorial staff based in Sydney as part of Nine’s new regional news division, will bring Canberra residents the news that matters most to them and their communities.
Grant Blackley, chief executive officer of SCA, said: “We are pleased to be able to broadcast a Canberra-based news service for our viewers. We are committed to investing in jobs and our local communities, bringing the best local stories to air and providing our Canberra clients and businesses with new opportunities to reach their customers.”
