Two media releases, in quick succession and no doubt related, came from Nine in the past hour.
The first tells us:
PBL Media today announced that Mia Freedman will leave the business this week after twelve months in the position of Creative Services Director for the Nine Network Australia and Editorial Consultant for ACP Magazines.
Mia’s role will now be absorbed by Nine’s Head of Programming, Michael Healy.
And then the second announces:
The Nine Network Australia today announced that a decision had been taken to cease production on its weekday talk show, The Catch Up.
The final broadcast will occur on Friday 15th June, 2007.
Nine moved The Catch-Up to a new timeslot at the start of the week but nothing could save it. The Y&R timeslot still needs something for the stay-at-homes. What will they try next?
