Also, what's the story behind this image from The Spy Report? Is it part of the channel's graphics package or is it some kind of mock-up?

It's based on the front cover of the ABC News 24 press kit which was released this afternoon:

I am going to have to stop reading through here, it's making me come over all talkback radio.

Now, if that's isn't 'MS Comment of the Year' - then I don't know what is! Clearly, someone is extremely exciting about ABC News 24's launch!

The Australia image in that map looks like the one Fast Forward used in its "SBS viewing highlights" send-up...

Good news indeed. Will the launch be live at 5.30pm (WA TIME) on launch date? or will we get it delayed for Perth viewers? I assumed this channel would be live from get go.

My understanding is that it will be live from the start, hence the specification of AEST for the launch.

In relation to the press kit... it's a pretty large file and my connection's going a bit funny right now, so hang tight for a bit and I'll have it uploaded soon. In the meantime, the summaries in this post are retrieved from the press kit, so if you haven't read them, you can get a head start. ;)

EDIT: Press kit here

Launch would be live across Australia - so 17:30 in WA on News 24. You could then watch the launch again on delay on ABC1 at 19:30. Same will go for News Breakfast that will be live from 0400-0800 in WA on ABC News 24, and on delay in its usual time on ABC2.

So news breakfast will be extending to 4hours. It's going to seem weird with all these live casts and delayed telecasts. So it won't be live on ABC1 in other states, that's a bit of a bugger.

So schedule will be something like this:

6am-News Breakfast
10am-Business Today?
10:30am-Mornings?
12pm-Midday
12:30pm-Lunchtime
2pm-Afternoon Live?
6pm-The Drum?
7pm?
8pm-The World?
8:30pm-Lateline Business?
9pm-Evening News
10pm-Late News Service?
11pm-Overnight?

Thanks to Cyril and kevizz for the press kit, that is very well put together. It's also the first time I have seen exactly where the ABC have newsrooms across the country, and the sheer amount of bureaux is something that every taxpayer should be proud of!

Still nothing about the amount of live news on weekends?
I'm hoping they put together a decent weekend schedule, even Sky's isn't that bad anymore.

A repeat of Insiders on Sunday night would be very much appreciated.

It would be good if they could show more, and possibly live parliamentary debates on legislation, committees and state sittings of significance.

My Schedule based loosely on other contributors (kimberb):

Monday-Friday

0600 – 1000 ABC NEWS Breakfast with Virginia Trioli and Michael Rowland
1000 – 1030 Business TODAY with Whitney Fitzsimmons
1000 – 1200 Mornings with Joe O’Brien
1200 – 1230 The Midday Report with Ros Childs
1230 – 1400 Lunchtime with Joe O’Brien
1400 – 1800 Afternoon LIVE with Ali Moore and Jeremy Fernandez
1800 – 1830 The DRUM with Annabel Crab
1830 – 2030 Evenings with Annabel Crab
2030 – 2100 Business TONIGHT (formerly Lateline Business) with Ticky Fullerton
2100 – 2200 ABC NEWS National with Juanita Phillips
2200 – 0000 The World with Scott Bevan
0000 – 0600 Overnights (I’m guessing this will comprise of half-hourly updates and mainly repeats of the 7.30 report, Stateline(s), and Lateline. Also, Newsline will fit in here somewhere I think 0000)

Weekends are a bit tricky, as not a large number of stories break during this time, I guess there will be some rolling news but there will be I’m guessing a large number of repeats (Four Corners, Australian Story, Foreign Correspondent, Landline, Stateline(s), Catalyst, Compass) The ideal time for repeats will be in the morning and evening time slots as much of the breaking news will have already gone to air then.

Saturday

0600 – 1000 ABC NEWS Breakfast
1000 – 1200 Mornings
1200 – 1400 Lunchtime
1400 – 1800 Afternoons
1800 – 2030 Evenings
2100 – 2200 ABC NEWS National
2200 – 0600 Evenings/Overnights

Sunday

0600 – 0900 ABC NEWS Breakfast
0900 – 1130 Insiders, Inside Business, Offsiders, Asia-Pacific Focus
1130 – 1400 Lunchtime
1400 – 1800 Afternoons
1800 – 2000 Evenings
2000 – 2100 ONE-ON-ONE
2100 – 2200 ABC NEWS National
2200 – 0600 Evenings/Overnights (definitely a repeat of Insiders, Inside Business, Offsiders, Asia-Pacific Focus here somewhere)

Any chance of going the cheap route and relaying BBC World overnight? This approach would be consistent with NewsRadio.

I doubt it.

1. 35% of Australians have BBC World already
2. It's not a good look for an Australian news channel.

I think ABC News 24 will re air ABC1 and their own primetime programming

I love Chris Uhlmann's reply in Mediaweek about the SKY News mantra.

Uhlmann says the ABC had a responsibility to be careful about getting the facts right the first time, even in a fast-paced 24 hour news environment:

"I can't believe the managing director of Sky News revels in the slogan Never Wrong For Long".


(This comes as the leadership issue commenced on Wednesday evening and SKY News kept saying Lindsay Tanner was in the same room with Rudd and Gillard, despite the fact he was at a pub about 5km away.)
