Billionaire Kerry Stokes recently merged the Seven Network with his Mining services company. This company is now a coupled with the Western Australian newspaper.

The quality of the paper has improved since Stokes merged it in.
It was an absolute disgrace a few years ago, now its generally readable without vitriol and insane far right bias as you used to find with the prior editor.
All the commercial nets are populist to pander to the "battler" demographic (though if you were to pick with national coverage, Seven tends to swing to Labor and Nine tends to swing to Liberal but its not really consistent) so I don't see any problem with it IMO.

I thought PBL (when it was still owned by Kerry Packer) was bigger? Because it had Channel Nine, ACP, Ticketek, ninemsn and Crown Casino.

bit off topic, but why is the studio location described as "Tuart Hill" when the suburb/distract hasn't been Tuart Hill for several decades?

I heard a rumour they were looking at building a street-fronting studio in the development they're going to build on their Perth Entertainment Complex lands.

I thought that was already underway, or am I thinking of Adelaide?

Probably Adelaide, groundwork hasn't started on the PEC redevelopment.

I'm not sure what that company's structure is these days but would have thought it still may be the biggest. And what about Newscorp that owns so many newspapers(the Australian, Herald Sun, Daily Telegraph), Foxtel, production companies (Fox Studios, Shine), magazines, online media, the NRL and all the other associated companies.

The $4.1 billion dollar merger between the Seven Media Group and West Australian Newspapers has been approved. The new company, Seven West Media, will be the largest media company in Australia.

One of the big winners will be Redwave Media. They might use Seven resources to make their own news bulletins.

Probablty historical reference

I think also that using the Tuart Hill Post Office as the address for all their competitions in the past may have helped associate it in peoples minds.

The Spy Report:

Kerry Stokes, the chairman of Seven Group Holdings, will face court on contempt of court charges next month in relation to comments he made about his former sales chief James Warburton.

At a directions hearing in the New South Wales Supreme Court yesterday, Justice Michael Pembroke said that hearings on the contempt charges would commence on 28 June.
