Back in the late-90s and early 2000s Nine had really long closers on all their bulletins.

 

Not surprised that Nine Melb are still doing that. They typically stick to tradition for a lot longer than Sydney. GTV used an ancient version of the Cool Hand Luke music after the 2006 relaunch.

I noticed that last night too.

We don't usually have long closers here though, in fact last night was the first time in a long time I remember seeing a long closer...

Is it common for Nine News Melbourne to have a long closer? I watched Nine News Melbourne yesterday & tonight and the news theme/closer was longer compared to Nine News Sydney. There wasn't a special report in particular either, so it got me curious as to whether long closers are a common feature on Nine News Melbourne.

Not always. Perhaps they still had to fill in some time before ACA started.
NO SIGNATURE FOR ME, THANKS

Ok, thanks for that :) It has been two years since I have watched Nine News Melbourne, so I wasn't sure as to whether the closer had changed or not.

Traditionally GTV did a long closer with credits on the last Sunday of every month. Was their credits?

I don't believe there was, however I watched Nine News Melbourne via WIN Gippsland, so the horrible ticker/preview possibly could of covered it.

Nine Perth - I really think Tim should not stand up for the Today Perth News. All the breakfast news programs that have tried stand-up presentation have failed. He's better off sitting.

Went to the Royal Melbourne Show today and visited the Channel Nine Melbourne stand in the Woolworths Fresh Food People and decided to take some photos.

9 Adelaide slightly tweaked the set this week. Removed the horrible old plasma TV's that were used as an OTS,
they added a wall on the angle were the TV's used to be. They are now using on screen graphics for an OTS. 

 

Could only get pics of the new graphics not the set change.

Maybe it's just me, but the OTS graphic on Nine News Adelaide looks a bit like the one NBN News uses. The control room-esque background used looks OK, but for a local bulletin a background of the Adelaide skyline (whether it's a live shot or an animated background loop) should be used instead IMO.

They also use the skyline background from a front on position,
