Ten – criticised by some for not having rolling coverage when rivals Seven and Nine did – today has non stop news until 7pm. All normal day time programming has been abandoned.
All programming on ABC1 has also been abandoned until further notice. ABC1 is providing the ABC News 24 coverage non-stop, for the benefit of those who cannot get ABC News 24.
Non stop coverage of course continues on ABC News 24 and Sky News.
Although the Brisbane River has peaked, it will be many days before the crisis reduces in severity. Expect rolling coverage to continue, possibly through out the weekend. The extra news bulletins are likely to remain for several days at least.
