The Nine Network

In 2006, National Nine News underwent a refresh to its on-air presentation style, to a new graphical system that lacks authority and iconic elements such as the striped "globe".

Combined with a distinct fall in the quality of the actual content in recent years, it has become increasingly clear to many viewers that National Nine News has seen a decline in quality.

We, the undersigned, are of the belief that:

- Nine News has the obligation as a television news service to provide quality news that reflects an appropriate state of local, national and international affairs.

- Nine News has caused significant disillusionment among viewers due to the perception that the news service has seen a significant decline in quality and relevance.

- Nine News has lost significant authority among viewers due to failed attempts to adapt to the changing television climate, commensurate with a loss of reputation and popularity.

- Nine News has an on-air presentation style that does not appropriately reflect the style of an substantial, authoritative news bulletin.

We, the undersigned, propose that:

- Nine News must improve the prioritisation of its news bulletins to reflect more appropriately the importance of certain stories, particularly in relation to national and international news.

- Nine News must use its financial resources more efficiently, in order to pay appropriate attention to the most important stories on a national and international basis.

- Nine News must adequately promote itself as the commercial television news leader in actions as well as in words.

- Nine News must invest in a redesign of the graphical elements of its on-air presentation, with the return of elements such as the “globe”, which supply authority to the bulletin.
