Channel Nine's Alicia Loxley. Historically, however, that's always been the case. Home life, marriage and child raising, media analyst Steve Allen says, are the catalysts for people becoming news devotees. If anything, it seems that new media, continuous news and social media such as Facebook and Twitter seem to be helping the nightly bulletins' resurgence.
It's still a chance for people to sit down, take it in and assess the day. I think people need that handbrake on the day. It's a fairly digestible package. Trying to hunt that information on various websites would be fairly labour- and time- intensive. I think that's appealing, particularly for the older audience. This would help reduce the average age of the audience and increase the audience size.
Channel Nine managing director Jeff Browne confirmed this last year. However, Browne said it was doubtful this shift would occur any time soon, as neither network was likely to ''blink first''. One rumour that has circulated this year is Seven's plan to axe its tabloid current-affairs show Today Tonight and host an hour of news coverage from 6pm-7pm. I think the 6. We can't keep serving up the same meal year after year. We have to be more inventive, more adventurous maybe, and I think you'll see that on Seven and Nine.

In the US, the nightly news bulletins have been in steep decline for the past decade. And they are viewed as almost quaint dinosaurs by US media observers.
Habit and trust are key factors in the institution's survival, says Anthony Flannery, director of Ten news, but he believes many in the industry forget that TV is a visual medium. The danger we have with a lot of so-called new media is that there is a lot of agenda-driven articles masquerading as news.
Change, Wick says, has to be managed slowly and carefully. That was a terrific time, a terrific era, but it's gone now and we can't rely on what was built up. Flannery insists that ''science rather than butchery'' is behind the decision to make all Ten's bulletins single-presenter.
We still have more than adequate resources to cover the stories that count in each of our markets, we are fully committed to localism.

Flannery insists that Ten will not shift its bulletin from 5pm or reduce it to a traditional half hour. The 5pm slot is a ''position of strength'', he says. I've read comments that our localism will suffer because of our restructuring. It won't; we'll still do more than our competition.
