Southern Cross News gets a refresh

Last week Tasmania’s Southern Cross News received a much needed and long awaited refresh in shifting to a new, more modern studio.

The news had been presented from a set that dates back to the Nineties and a studio that dates back to when the station debuted as TNT9 in 1962.

At the close of the bulletin last Tuesday, Southern Cross News presented a tribute to over 50 years of news production from the old studio, with a new-look bulletin launching the next night:

Although Southern Cross is aligned to the Nine Network on the mainland, it is an affiliate of the Seven Network in Tasmania. Southern Cross News is consistently among Tasmania’s most popular programs.

    lovely to re-live memories. Always a very comprehensive news bulletin with overseas and local events and excellent presenters. In the clip I remembered names from the early years when I worked there – Ray James, sporting commentator and Max Lamb, behind the cameras.But not many women in technical area, – where I had hoped to work in the seventies.
    Congratulations Southern Cross on a splendid new studio.
