SBS news tonight

SBS is preparing a story they anticipate will run on their TV news tonight that references the newsagency channel. I have been contacted for some background information. I stressed there is plenty of good news in the channel as there are businesses transitioning, finding new traffic through new opportunities.

    I saw it and it was balanced .

    I felt it could have been more optimistic. The IBISWorld data is not as comprehensive or accurate as it could be. I’d prefer the filming to be from a newsagency that looked less traditional.

    Where were the gaps in IBISWorld?

    And it would be great to see a non-traditional agency.

    One which looked like a greenhouse or a zoo perhaps.

    Do you have a link for the IBIS world report and SBS?

    Joe there IBIS report is behind a paywall. I could not find a link from SBS after the story aired.
