George Negus cancelled for an hour of ‘The Project’

Network Ten announced today that 6:30 with George Negus is to be cancelled.

The news confirms suspicions circulating since Ten cut Video Hits.

In its place will be an hour’s worth of the 7PM Project, to start at 6:30 and be renamed The Project. Negus will remain at Ten and be a regular guest on The Project.

In a press release making the announcement, Ten’s chief programming officer David Mott said: “We’re incredibly proud of George and our 6.30 team, both in front of the cameras and behind the scenes. 6.30 has been a high quality, credible, and thought provoking news program for the network. The decision to discontinue 6.30 was a commercial one and in no way reflects on the quality of George, the program or the team. We are grateful to George for establishing and steering this bold experiment over the last 10 months.”
