Nine axes Perth and Adelaide versions of A Current Affair

The WIN Corporation is axing the local versions of its programme A Current Affair in Perth and Adelaide, blaming the tough economic climate on the decision.  

The locally-produced shows will wrap up this Friday at the end of the TV ratings season and will then be replaced by a national version hosted by Tracey Grimshaw.

In Perth ACA is hosted by Louise Momber, and in Adelaide by Kate Collins.

In a statement, Channel 9 Adelaide said: “The current economic environment has forced a review of A Current Affair under its current operational format; an investigative crew will continue to source local Adelaide stories contributing to the national program on a regular basis.”
