Three regional television news bulletins in Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales will be axed in the coming months as the Nine Network changes its affiliation again from Southern Cross Austereo back to WIN TV.
WIN and Nine have signed a deal which will see WIN transferred back to an affiliation agreement its former partner.
The exact number of jobs expected to be lost is not yet clear.
Staff were informed of the move in an email from Nine CEO Hugh Marks this morning.
In 2016, Nine did a deal with Southern Cross, leaving WIN to sign on with the 10 Network.
It also saw Nine create 15 new regional newsrooms.
Staff were told at a meeting this morning that regional bulletins are expected to be aired until June 30 before the networks switch back.
More to come.
