Airtime snipped from ABC’s PM and The World TodayBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Wednesday, 06th December 2017 at 3:13pm
Two flagship shows at ABC Radio have had their airtime curtailed.
ABC Radio audio current affairs managing editor Tanya Nolan said in a staff meeting that for 2018, PM and The World Today will have their time blocks cut from an hour to 30 minutes starting January 22, 2018. The World Today is scheduled to run from 12 noon to 12:30pm, with the remainder of the hour to be occupied by a new national show hosted by Myf Warhurst, who leaves Double J at the end of the year.
PM will air at 6:30pm on local radio to follow the 4pm Drive show, which has been extended from 6pm to 6:30pm in each state. Business PM, a ten-minute business news roundup starting at 6:50pm, will be axed.
In explaining the rationale behind the decisions, Nolan said recent research data indicated more people – particularly those in the under-55 bracket — tuning to audio and digital content on-demand instead of on the radio.
