Everything old is new again…in more ways than one. | S09E08

Here we go, friends. It’s another extremely fresh episode of the TV Blackbox podcast with Rob, Robbo, and Molk…all completely livestreamed live, with audio as-live.

Every Tuesday night in season from 8pm AEDT/7pm AEST/etc., you can join us live on the TV Blackbox Facebook page or YouTube channel. We’d absolutely love it if you joined in – as many keep doing – by commenting on the livestream…which allows us to include a broad sample in the episode to help punctuate our conversation. For those that join us live-thanks for playing along, friends!

Watch here in all the colours of the ‘bow, man:

So what did we talk about? How about all of this:

  • Nine’s National News Director Darren Wick steps away in kind of awkward circumstances, and nobody can agree on what’s actually happening;
  • Rob has a chat with Nine’s director of programming Hamish Turner about their best start to the year (and that’s saying something), and how that positions the network for the rest of 2024;
  • In news absolutely everyone saw coming Paramount Global confirmed Beverley McGarvey as stand-alone CEO to run the ANZ business all by herself like a proper grown-up and everything;
  • There is controversy (look, not really) at the new airdate (release time) of popular (with some) series Doctor Who (they are on first) now that it’s part of Disney‘s content family (regimented programming) and this is what happens when capitalism overtakes public broadcasting (naturally).

We finish this ep with our traditional TV BINGEBOX segment, full of endorsements and warnings (some upmolks here and some downmolks there).

Thanks for tuning in and participating in this week’s ep of the TV BLACKBOX Podcast (you couldn’t wait for this one).
