The final regional TV news bulletins have aired in SA, with SCA pulling the plug on Spencer Gulf Nightly News.
A spokesperson for Southern Cross Austereo said discussions with affected staff on redeployment opportunities are underway.
Following the final bulletin last Wednesday, locals voiced their sadness and outrage on social media, with Member for Giles, Eddie Hughes, saying the axing is a real loss for the region.
Airing in the region for several decades, the news service has helped journalists kick start their career, with Channel Nine’s Will McDonald and Channel Seven’s Rosanna Mangiarelli both anchoring the program in the past.
