Sky News at Ten - History - Netflix
Network Ten, introduced its News Service in Australia in 1965, with the networks founding and was a pioneering force behind the concept of the hour-long News Bulletin (the other rival networks where presenting 30 minutes) co-anchored in the form of Eyewitness News from 1973 onwards. The 1980s were arguably the network's most successful period as a news provider with its local Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane bulletins often rating highest for their 6pm timeslots. Ten's flagship nightly bulletin news services has undergone a number of name changes since inception in 1965 including: ATV News in Melbourne, SASTEN News in Adelaide, NewsWatch in Brisbane, TEN News, TEN Evening News, Eyewitness News and TEN Eyewitness News. A major change to the service occurred in January 1992 when all five of its local bulletins were moved to the 5.00pm time slot. In 1994 all local weekend bulletins were axed across the network and replaced by a 30-minute national bulletin from Sydney – Ten Weekend News, initially presented by John Gatfield and later by Tracey Spicer, Natarsha Belling and Bill Woods. A localised version of Ten Weekend News was received from Sydney for Perth, while during the AFL season Adelaide and Melbourne viewers received local news on a Saturday, presented from Melbourne by George Donikian. For a short period in 2009, Ten Weekend News also included localised sport inserts for each market. Ten Eyewitness News has often been described as a 'training ground' for some of Australia's best-known television journalists. Some of the best-known reporters and presenters who launched or spent a major part of their careers at “Ten Eyewitness News” include Jana Wendt, Kerry O'Brien, Katrina Lee, Charles Slade, Ann Sanders, Steve Liebmann, Tim Webster, Ron Wilson, Anne Fulwood, Juanita Phillips, Harry Potter, Liz Hayes, Jo Pearson, David Johnson, Bill McDonald, Chris Masters, Larry Emdur, Eddie McGuire, John Gatfield, Kay McGrath, Graeme Goodings, Sharyn Ghidella, Laurie Oakes, Geraldine Doogue, Helen Kapalos, Jennifer Keyte, Deborah Knight, Bruce McAvaney, Nathan Templeton, Mel McLaughlin, Karl Stefanovic, Mark Beretta, Amber Sherlock and George Donikian amongst others. In September 2010, the network announced a major expansion of its news service. From 24 January 2011, It would expand its evening news output by introducing a national current affairs program at 6pm, 6PM with George Negus, and an extra local bulletin at 6:30pm on weeknights, with the Ten Evening News brand reinstated. In addition, the network announced the re-introduction of local weekend bulletins at 6pm and the axing of its 5pm national bulletin. Two months after the relaunch, the national weekend bulletins were re-introduced owing to poor ratings although the 6pm local bulletins continue to air. Later that month, the network announced it would drop its 6:30pm local bulletins on weeknights, extend Ten News at Five to 90 minutes and move George Negus' program to 6:30pm each weeknight. The changes were introduced on Monday 4 April 2011. Further changes in September 2011 saw the axing of the network's late night bulletin and the state-based 6pm weekend bulletins. The 5pm national bulletin on Saturdays and Sundays was extended to 90 minutes a month later. Later that month, the network announced it would axe 6.30 with George Negus and replace with an hour-long version of The 7PM Project (renamed The Project). In November 2011, the last half-hour of Ten's 5pm state bulletins were rebranded as Ten News at Six. Two months later, the network announced its main 5pm bulletin would be shortened back to 60 minutes from Sunday 22 January 2012 with The Project moved to 6pm. The network's Ten Early News bulletin was axed in February 2012 following the launch of Network Ten's Breakfast program. More changes during the year saw the return of a networked Ten Late News in a new format launched on 4 June 2012, and the axing of Breakfast on 30 November 2012, due to low ratings and cost cutting measures at the network. In September 2013, Network Ten revived the Ten Eyewitness News branding for all of its news output, including the flagship 5pm state bulletins. Two months later, a new breakfast program, Wake Up, was launched. On 21 May 2014, Network Ten announced it would axe Wake Up and all national news bulletins on weekdays as part of a wider cost cutting program with the loss of around 150 jobs, caused by poor ratings and advertising revenue. The state-based 5pm news continues to air, alongside national bulletins at weekends. The network also closed its two international bureaux in Los Angeles and London. In February 2014, Network Ten announced that Hugh Riminton would join Sandra Sully as a co-anchor of the bulletin. In November 2014, Candice Wyatt joined Stephen Quartermain as a co-anchor and finally in August 2015 Lachlan Kennedy joined Georgina Lewis as a co-anchor in Brisbane. On 16 May 2016, Ten Eyewitness News updated their set and graphics. However, the logo remains the same. In January 2017, the three east coast metro bulletins (Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane) returned to solo anchors with Hugh Riminton, Candice Wyatt and Lachlan Kennedy returning to reporting duties in February.
