Nine has switched to rolling coverage of Australia’s bush fire crisis.
The coverage began with Nine News Now at 3pm eastern, in just the broadcast’s second day, followed by a special report from 4pm presented by Amelia Adams.
This will be followed by a state-based bushfire bulletin from 6pm followed by a return to national programming with A Current Affair offering extended, one hour coverage of the disaster from 6.30-7.30pm. A special 9.30pm report has also just been announced.
A spokesperson for Nine told Mumbrella that depending on developments, the coverage may continue at 7.30pm, or the network may return to normal broadcasting.
News channels Sky News and ABC News 24 are also providing rolling coverage of the crisis.
