9 News Brisbane suffered major technical difficulties on 21 Jan 2014 that saw the one hour bulletin forced to finish after just 36 minutes. Story playout kept failing and it resulted in no sport being shown and several promised storied missed.
There were multiple early breaks to commercial to allow time to correct the problem, blank stares, a frozen image, a black screen, queried looks to the floor manager but in the end there was nothing to be done.
The following program A Current Affair was fortunately on one hour delay because of the time difference with Sydney caused by daylight saving so was able to be played just after 6:36, a time that it used to occupy anyway until the recent introduction of the one hour news.
And the poor anchor though all this is Melissa Downes. Wally Lewis also seen attempting to do sport.
