Nine News has announced that it will reinstate its one-hour standalone news bulletin for Darwin.
In 2017, Nine ceased production of news from its Darwin studios and relocated the bulletin to Brisbane, adopting Darwin as part of its regional news output. The bulletin was suspended earlier this year amid the COVID-19 outbreak, replaced with a relay of Nine‘s Brisbane news which was supplemented by brief local updates for Darwin.
The restored Darwin bulletin, to commence on 5 October, will be presented by Paul Taylor in Brisbane but will feature stories filed by a team of reporters, camera operators and editors based in Darwin.
Nine News is Darwin’s only commercial TV news service, beginning as News At Seven in October 1982. The local Seven and Ten outlets relay interstate news bulletins.
