Get Amber Sherlock back doing news on WT I say! Like old times.

I would love to see Amber return as show's newsreader ,she's being wasted doing weather reports.

Amber's a great talent and she had a good personality for the weekend show. They never got her to host the show though. It was always Natalie, Livinia, Shelley or mainly Allison.
I think Wendy would be a good option as host.

Deborah Knight has been main fill in host for Leila so you would assume she would replace her while she is on maternity leave.I agree Wendy Kingston would also be good host,but I think Nine will want her back on her Weekday News Bulletins.

A lot of promos being shown for today, during the prime time television tonight. More then usual I found. Personally, I thoughht it was good to see. Shame the promo wasn't much good. But hey I suppose begged can't be choosers.

Jade Robran has just had a baby and (correct me if I am wrong) is now just working as a freelance journalist. I don't think she is part of the network anymore (I haven't seen her anyway nor has she been mentioned as the 'dedicated SA reporter')

Haven't seen anyone reporting from SA for quite some time. Will McDonald was used a little.
I think Jade left not long after it was announced that she had not been appointed weekend news anchor.

Interesting video uploaded by digitaldanmartin - 28 Jan 1998 Opener

Could the music be considered the theme tune for the time?
Also sounds like Steve knocked something on the desk when talking.

Great clip. That was the Today I grew up with. The theme you heard was the theme for quite a long time. At the time it was quite iconic for the show.

Also, jeez Roscoe had "it."

Thanks for posting. Any others would be great.

the show seems to be getting bigger guests now but the interviewing is terrible! there's no research, there's not enought time and Richard Wilkins asks the stock standard questions he would on a press junket. Karl tries to shake things up but he's not trained to be an entertainment reporter. I'm sure the conversation off camera was better.

Looks like The Voice is helping Todays ratings too, from yesterday

Sunrise: 363,000
Today: 350,000

A difference of only 13 thousand!
