1.
Does he fill in on Prime News??






He is the relief presenter for Prime News if both Suzy Aiken and Nicole Webb (who are both the show's producers as well) are away. If he is unable to present the bulletin, then it will usually be presented by John Gatfield.



2. The show is based on Channel Ten's "First at 5" idea. See http://www.mediawatch.co.nz/default,427.smhttp://www.mediawatch.co.nz/default,427.sm> on an interview on RNZ National Radio over a year ago.

In, The Australian (newspaper) today there is a report that Prime News at 5:30 now has 16% of the market.






This may be true, but I suspect it is far more likely that it means that Prime News has 16% of the 5:30 - 6:00 timeslot, against the competition of entertainment news show Headliners, high-rating youth soap Home and Away and reality show American Idol.



4. I wonder what Prime News will do when Sky News move into their new studio. I wonder if there are any plans to develop a Sky News Centre in New Zealand - quite possibly since they already have a studio for the Sky News current affairs show Williams Upfront based at Sky Television in Auckland.
