WIN Corporation Managing Director David Butorac today announced new locally produced A Current Affair programs to be presented live from Channel Nine's Dianella studios in Perth and Tynte Street studios in Adelaide.
In a move that WIN claims "demonstrates its commitment to viewers and the development of local programming", Channel Nine Perth and Channel Nine Adelaide will employ a talented group of journalists, producers and camera operators to bring their respective viewers a fresh new look A Current Affair.
Two dedicated teams working with the national A Current Affair team will provide extensive coverage on the stories specific to Adelaide and Perth combined with national stories on the people and issues that affect all Australians.
"As a part of our ongoing expansion and significant commitment to local news and programming, WIN Corporation is dedicated to developing its operations and the Nine brand by investing heavily in local production and local people", Mr Butorac said.
"A Current Affair is a quality production and we see this as a vital step forward in servicing our regions and providing for our audiences".
A Current Affair will follow Nine's weekday national news service at 6.30pm, providing Adelaide and Perth viewers an hour of locally produced news and current affairs - 90 minutes for WIN's regional Western Australia viewers, who also receive the local and WIN produced WIN News.
In Perth, A Current Affair will be presented by former National Nine News presenter Sonia Vinci.
Air dates are yet to be confirmed and a presenter is yet to be announced for Adelaide's A Current Affair.
