I don't think relaunches have to take place at the beginning of years..



Sky News UK relaunched in October, TV 2 in NZ relaunched in Feb, Channels relaunch at all different times of the year.

I've also heard that early April is when the relaunch will occur.



January 30 is also when we can expect Ten News to unveil changes.

Ten Early News with Bill Woods & Kathryn Robinson debuts at 6am.

The Morning News moves to 11am.

First at Five is expected to be changed across the nation:

It looks like Sandra Sully will join Ron Wilson at 5pm in Sydney.

Ten want to demote Jennifer Hansen from the Melb. news to Adelaide's.

She'll probably leave.

They currently have gaps to fill on the Sydney and Adelaide news, and probably Melbourne news.

The late news and Sports Tonight are being merged into one half hour break which is a stupid move, but hey what can we do!

Sandra Sully will probably be replaced by Deborah Knight.

What? Wouldn't they move to Ryde and Re-Launch at the same time?

Rent might be running out so when they move the current set to Ryde they might be doing presenting from CSO for a week till its set up at Ryde then present from there till the new set is 100% complete.

Be patient, things still need to be done.

What still needs to be done?

I was under the impression that the studio was complete, but the move was what was causing delays??



I've heard they're moving no later than May.

They are moving this week, I think, and will most likely be presenting from chroma key from this monday or next monday, and chances are it was the newswall they didn't have was causing delays, and I was also told a few months back that there was space for one but they didnt have one!. this is what I was told awhile ago, so things may have changed... relaunch is still early may though and defiantly no later!

So they're modifying the set to include a newswall?

Very interesting.

Will the newswall be like Londons, or the pathetic one they have now at Frenchs Forest?



Will they stick with co-presented bulletins while using the chromo set?
