Title: Campbell Live
Post by: Mr Nice Guy on Thu 9 April, 2015 - 05:52 pm
Might be Campbell Dead  :idea:


Quote
Just a fortnight after its tenth anniversary, Campbell Live is facing the axe.

Following a meeting this afternoon, Mediaworks confirmed the primetime show is under review. Ratings for the 7pm current affairs stalwart have been in steady decline.

The review will be led by Mark Jennings, Mediaworks group head of news, who said it was part of a broader review of the MediaWorks business. It was being done to "improve commercial performance of the 7pm TV3 time-slot in a changing television market."

"Viewer expectations in 2015 are quite different from those of 2005 and we need to constantly review our programming to ensure we are meeting those expectations," Jennings said.

"Campbell Live is one of the mainstays of New Zealand media and has been at the forefront of New Zealand's news and current affairs landscape for a decade. John Campbell and Campbell Live have won every award possible, broken some of the most important stories of the decade, repeatedly been voted most popular current affairs presenter and programme, and made a real difference to Kiwis' lives."

The review was no reflection on the quality of the programme, or the work of John Campbell or the Campbell Live team, he said. No timeframe was given for the review and staff were now being consulted.

When asked if there would be job losses and if the show would continue in some form or be dropped completely, a Mediaworks spokeswoman said: "There are a range of possible outcomes, and, until the review is complete, it would simply be speculation to discuss how roles may change, or if they will change at all."

Last year, Seven Sharp pulled in an average of 430,000 viewers in the 5+ demographic per episode. In comparison, Campbell Live had 240,000, according to figures from ratings company Nielsen.

In the last week of March, when Campbell Live celebrated a decade on air, it also saw some of the worst ratings in its history. According to analysis by throng.co.nz, it averaged an audience of 154,576 per night for that week - a week in which Seven Sharp exceeded 500,000 viewers for the first time.

Jennings said in July that while ratings might be important, Campbell Live "creams" Seven Sharp when it comes to audience engagement.

In March, Campbell wrote 7pm was a "brutal timeslot - the toughest in New Zealand television".


Wonder if Paul Henry could kick start the time slot again  :thinking:

I used to always like it, but a few weeks ago there was a cyclone somewhere and every single night he was in the country it happened talking to people, so I stopped watching, even the cricket world cup final week he dedicated a few nights to boring cricket stuff :idea:

I saw on Facebook before that it might be taken over by Jono and Ben every day, as much as I like Jono and Ben they often run out of ideas, seems like a late April Fools

But now I'm watching Campbell Live and he's doing a "Look at all the great stuff we do" type episode, so perhaps they've already been canned - Jono and Ben have announced they know nothing so it's all a bit weird

He is fantastic on social issues; but i doubt that being a social worker would get the same results as prime time TV does.

Post by: Stu on Fri 10 April, 2015 - 12:43 pm
Not only him, Duncan Garner and Sean Plunkett have been against zero hour contracts as well, they work for media works and they're not being shut down.  Sean Plunkett was talking about it this morning and stated that the Campbell Live workers have been told there's going to be a review, not being shut down anyway, the Herald just blew it out of proportion and the other nutters have joined in.

Hopefully this will make John Campbell a little less bias, I like watching it myself but events like the Len Brown incident where Len got the friendly interview whereas the people that exposed the affair were harassed by Campbell Live, then when Dirty Politics was released they reversed how the handled the Len Brown thing and went to Cam Slaters house and harassed his family wanting an interview within an hour of the book being released - he needs to treat people based on facts not their politics :idea:

I don't think so.

C'mon, all the "love" he had for chch over the earthquakes is what turned me off him.

He used emotional journalism tactics to make him look like the "battler's" best friend and a media shoulder to cry on. It was hard to tell whether he was at times trying to compete with Fair Go with some of the stories. If he wanted to be everybody's best friend and buddy then that's another show, not a current affairs program.

TV3 is likely to replace Campbell Live with a new, long-running daily serial drama, going head-to-head with TV2's Shortland St.

Shocked staff at the TV3 current affairs show were told yesterday that it has been put "under review" by management, and human resources executives were on hand.

Mark Jennings, news chief of TV3 parent company MediaWorks, said: "Viewer expectations in 2015 are quite different from those of 2005 and we need to constantly review our programming to ensure we are meeting those expectations."

MediaWorks notes the review is being undertaken to improve commercial performance of the 7pm timeslot in a changing television market.

No specific timeframe can be given for the review, Jennings says, but a period of consultation with all staff has started.

It is expected that a daily drama will replace the news show. A production company has been selected to produce the five-day-a-week soap for TV3 targeting a 25-54 demographic.


It is understood that production company is Eyeworks, makers of The Bachelor NZ.


Looks like tv3 is full of jobs for the boys, and Johnny isn't one of the boys anymore  :idea:

I think he just has to stop getting so absorbed in stuff, I normally watch CL every night but when there was the cyclone and all the stories they were advertising were never shown because he spent 30 minutes every night close talking villagers, which he did for a week or 2, I started doing other s**t instead of bothering with it - this week it's been better though :idea:

Embattled broadcaster John Campbell has engaged lawyer and former journalist Linda Clark to fight his corner, as the chairman of TV3's parent company, MediaWorks, confirms the company is looking for a homegrown soap to replace Campbell's current affairs show.

Ms Clark, a former TVNZ political editor and host of Radio New Zealand's Nine to Noon programme, is now a lawyer with Kensington Swan who specialises in damage control.

She did not return calls yesterday to discuss her client, echoing a chorus of official silence from most parties involved in this saga.


Let it go John  :facepalm:

Ratings Friday night prove he has a current audience. 

I think though television itself is in steady decline so many other viewing opportunities.

I don't think we should ever lose sight of current affairs and issues which effect all of us. Some things which are are easily swept under the carpet when no-one visible is asking the hard questions, which I think John Campbell is very good at, not afraid to open up a can of worms if need be and his input to various issues have had good results.

TV3 is to chop its Sunday night news bulletin to 30 minutes, in the latest dramatic move to turn its news department into a "news, commentary and conversation" team.

MediaWorks chief executive Mark Weldon is at odds with many among his 200-strong news staff after announcing "bubbles and bagels" to celebrate the launch of Paul Henry - at the same time as Campbell Live staff were being told their programme faced the axe.

"It was just insensitive and inappropriate," a TV3 news staffer said.

The reduced Sunday news bulletin, starting on May 24, allows TV3 to move its former hour-long mid-week 3rd Degree current affairs programme to early Sunday evening. It is being renamed 3D and will be shortened to 30 minutes.

Duncan Garner and Samantha Hayes remain the presenters. Hayes will also, with David Farrier, present Newsworthy, the renamed TV3 late news programme that will include a significant "digital element".


Still more changes, not just picking on Johnny after all  :idea:

Okay I'm reading all these articles and this is the picture I'm getting, TV 3 had a change of management as it was helped out of receivership with Government funding. Mark Weldon a good friend of John Keys then became CEO of media works, he and his co-hort  Julie Christie have been on JC's tail ever since.

I think this Government needs to be rid of JC to close down TV3, there are so many other viewing opportunities for people these days but I would say JC is keeping that channel viable.

TV 1 is completely owned by this Government, they don't need TV3, so to justify the closure, get rid of the program which keeps it humming. 


Title: Re: Campbell Live

The ratings show a steady decline right across the channel, but then it has never been as popular as TV 1 which was there from the get go. Tv 3 would never have had the same ratings as TV1.

Last year Prime Minister John Key and Mark Weldon had a phone conversation in regards to John Campbell.  Mr Key was overheard saying “I want that left wing bastard gone”. The prime minister had insidiously conspired with Mark Weldon to end John Campbell’s broadcasting career and have Campbell live taken off the air. Campbell Live is not biased against the National government it investigates poor government, remember when former Prime minister Helen Clark stormed off after calling John Campbell a “sanctimonious little creep“

Mark Weldon’s crony appointment as the CEO of media works was made by John Key. The National government have offered a great deal of privilege upon Mr Weldon.

    Chair the Summit on Employment  and
    Offered the Queens service order
    Lead The Christchurch Earthquake Appeal.
    the Capital Markets Development Taskforce in 2009/10
    Tax Working Group in 2009
    Climate Change Leadership Forum
    Board of High Performance Sport New Zealand
    NZ Olympic Committee

After the Campbell live exposed the exploitative Zero Hours contracts a letter was sent from Burger King to Campbell live and Mark Weldon was mysteriously CC’d into the email.  The email was from someone at Burger King who obviously has a relationship with Mark Weldon. Burger King has used its influence to help terminate the  Campbell Live show.

Any media outlet that tells you this is not politically motivated and based on ratings is lying to you.  The decision was made by the National party caucus with strong influence from former radio works CEO MP Steven Joyce. This is another attempt by the National government to control the media and any criticism of its policies.

In 2008 the newly elected National government imposed a funding freeze on Radio NZ. By 2014 the freeze had effectively cut Radio NZ's budget by 9%

May 2012. Kevin Kenrick, ex CEO of 'House of Travel', is appointed head of TVNZ.

June 2012. TVNZ 7 is axed. All archive material deleted from the TVNZ website the following day.

May 2013. A year after John Key is humiliated on BBC 'Hardtalk', TV One replaces 'BBC Overnight' with infomercials.

August 2014. Mark Weldon – ex head of NZ Stock Exchange, and a friend of John Key – is appointed head of Mediaworks, who own TV3 (Mediaworks had earlier received a $43m subsidised bailout loan from the current National government).

October 2014. National minister Georgina Te Heu Heu appoints her friend Paora Maxwell head of Maori TV. Maxwell immediately announces that Maori TV will focus on language and culture, not politics and social issues. Carol Hirschfield and Julian Wilcox – Maori TV's hugely respected heads of news and programming – both lose their jobs.

April 2015. A week after Campbell Live is a part of the successful campaign against 'Zero Hour contracts', Mark Weldon and Mediaworks board member Julie Christie announce a 'review' of Campbell Live. Despite the fact that Campbell Live is profitable show. Mediaworks cherry-pick ratings from the final weeks of the cricket world cup to show a 'slide in ratings'.

If Campbell Live is cancelled, the total number of TV shows left in New Zealand that will ever ask a tough question of an MP in prime time, will be none.

Bring some facts to the table, otherwise your god is as fake and unbelievable and built upon mythology as any other of the many gods there are.

And that's why there's no point  :idea:

Your god must be a stupid prick if he expects people two thousand years after his last appearance as himself but as his zombie son to believe a bunch of dudes who hodgepodged a book together of "memories" and hand me down stories and rules for humankind.

Bomber Bradbury's take on the situation


Title: Re: Campbell Live
Post by: Stu on Wed 15 April, 2015 - 09:59 am
Bomber is an idiot, pretty sure he used to be a KiwiFM DJ as well, so a bitter idiot perhaps :idea: Graeme Hill is one of my favourite talk show hosts and he doesn't come across as political to me, he normally talks about high brow science, religion, philosophy, history and language topics, and Andrew Fagan does talk a bit about politics and I think a lot of his opinions match mine, so of course I think he's an intelligent quality host :ok:


Title: Re: Campbell Live
Post by: Mr Nice Guy on Wed 15 April, 2015 - 10:33 am
Yeah I used to find him really good and one of the most interesting radio shows around with things that matched my interest but then it went a bit wanky with introducing all that overseas holiday promoting crap they got into, taking up time and didn't find it fit in with the theme of the show andvsincevthen with the move to Sunday night I haven't really followed it anymore, Sunday afternoons used to be quite a good time slit for it when there was s**t on every other channel. He does have lefty inclinations though but is more pro left than bash the right. He used to be friends with Karyn Hay and Andrew Fagan when he was more involved with the NZ music scene but there was some sort of falling out which every now and then Karyn or Andrew mention in brief without detail, but often bring up that he changed his name at some stage to Graeme Hill after the F1 driver for some reason. Not sure if they try to imply there was a sinister or dodgy reason for that but they put the idea out there that it was an odd thing for the guy to do  :thinking:


Bomber use to have a radio show ages ago too which was nothing like Hill's but interesting in a kind of local music and youth culture type way with hot sounding openly lesbo co hosts that used to bring their girlfriends in and be all flirty n s**t with each other while doing the show  :p
But since then he's turned into a total rabid lefty bordering on extremist  :rolleyes:

Weekend Herald investigation can reveal that earlier this year MediaWorks, in an unusual move, secretly trimmed the length of the show's cornerstone sponsorship.


During a February meeting with Mazda, the show's principal sponsor since 2008, instead of a typical one-year extension MediaWorks opted to extend the deal for only three months.

The new deal is set to expire at the end of May, signalling perhaps a curtain call for a show that only recently celebrated its tenth year on air.

Bill Ralston, a former TVNZ head of current affairs, said the short-term deal was highly unusual and only made sense if a decision about the future of the show had already been made.

"A three-month deal makes no sense, unless they were - at the point at which they negotiated that three-month deal - considering getting rid of Campbell Live."

A MediaWorks spokeswoman rejected suggestions the show was being railroaded into an early end. "It would be completely incorrect to suggest the outcome of this review is predetermined."

Mr Ralston said longer-term sponsorships made more financial sense for broadcasters.

"If you're a cash-strapped TV channel like they are, you'd want that cash booked in for at least a year."

I don't think it is cheap to refer to the systematic removal of oppositional thought or ideology that doesn't tow the current party line as being in line with Nazi philosophy. When a Government embarks on a journey to remove opposition, or anyone who questions their processes, then they're becoming nothing short of a dictatorship.

Can you see the 'wrong' in that statement.
 Isn't it completely off the rails to axe a top rating show? If it does happen someone's getting paid off big time to make it happen that or the entire channel is going. I won't be watching cocksucker hoskins or has been Paul.

Form your own opinion instead of parroting John Key's excuse for the FACT that he's been arse f**ked by Campbell a wee bit, also been majorly arse f**ked on the BBC's HardLine program where he was made a fool of too, he's a pushover when it's shoved up his arse and not one of the better politicians we've seen in the leadership role for ages. Once the grace period and the smarmy answers wore off he can't handle he hard s**t.

Campbell's legacy

Quote
The woman who put Gloriavale Christian Community guru Hopeful Christian in prison for indecent assault in the 1980s has had her name suppression lifted so she can tell her story on national television.

She will appear on the TV One show Sunday this weekend.

In previews for the show, the woman says there will be "no more hiding in shadows".

"[Hopeful] has got to be stopped."

Mr Christian, previously Neville Cooper, faced three charges of indecent assault from January 1984 relating to a 19-year-old member of the Christian community when it was based at Cust, in North Canterbury. The woman testified that she was penetrated with a wooden object.

Mr Christian said she was given the object and encouraged to use it on herself as "therapy".


In 1996, he failed to have his five-year jail sentence for indecent assault reduced. He was released that November.

The move from Cust to Lake Haupiri, inland from Nelson Creek, started in 1991 and was accompanied by a name change to the Gloriavale Christian Community.

Meanwhile, a request under the Official Information Act seems to confirm Gloriavale members do not receive social security benefits, despite claims by Campbell Live to the contrary.

The Greymouth Star asked how many people in the Haupiri area were receiving some form of benefit, after some ex-members suggested they may be.

The Ministry of Social Development said yesterday it could not reveal how many people were collecting a benefit because the numbers were too small, at less than five.

The Gloriavale website says members put their money in non-interest bearing bank accounts, while a booklet given out at the biennial Gloriavale concerts says: "We do not take welfare benefits, borrow money, or invest money on interest".

The Department of Internal Affairs confirmed late last week it was investigating Gloriavale's charity status.

The community owns assets of $36.6 million, including a dairy farm, deer enterprise and an aircraft repair firm - all operated from its reclusive base at Lake Haupiri.

The tax-exempt charity operating as the Christian Church Community Trust is run by four church leaders and headed by Hopeful Christian, who is referred to in documents as the"Overseeing Shepherd".

Awkward moment  :p


Quote
A secret meeting between a top TVNZ reporter and a TV3 boss became awkward when the journalist's boss walked in.

Political reporter Heather du Plessis-Allan recently met TV3 head of news Mark Jennings. It is understood TV3 wanted to talk to her about becoming a co-host for the station's new current affairs programme, set to replace the recently axed Campbell Live in the 7pm slot.

A source told the Weekend Herald du Plessis-Allan and Jennings had decided to meet in Wellington at the Bolton Hotel - an establishment many TVNZ staffers stay at regularly. The booking was made in the name of TVNZ, apparently to avoid suspicion.

However, unknown to the pair, TVNZ's head of news gathering, Phil O'Sullivan, was checking in to the hotel that day too.

A hotel staffer inadvertently gave the game away when Mr O'Sullivan was given access to the room booked under "TVNZ" - it is understood he opened the door to find the pair in secret talks.

Yesterday, du Plessis-Allan declined to comment, as did a spokeswoman for MediaWorks, TV3's parent company.


But TVNZ's head of news and current affairs, John Gillespie, wasn't surprised by the meeting. "We completely understand why MediaWorks are targeting our people - we think they're the best in the business too."

Campbell Live, as well as its host John Campbell, bowed out just over three weeks ago. The prime-time slot is currently being filled by cooking show Come Dine With Me NZ.

MediaWorks has not yet revealed who will take the reins for the new 7pm programme, but du Plessis-Allan is among the names - including Duncan Garner, Alison Mau and Paul Henry - that media commentators have suggested are in the running to co-host the show.

It's almost exactly three months since the New Zealand Herald's 'Diary' columnist Rachel Glucina announced in a tweet that she had been "headhunted" by Mediaworks "for a joint venture partnership to create, run and co-own a new digital entertainment platform."

Many of her former Herald colleagues believed she had, at best, jumped before she'd been pushed, and that the final straw had been not her unethical treatment of waitress Amanda Bailey but her ludicrous "conifers" column. The belief was that she was due to be dispensed with in a reshuffle after the departure of editor-in-chief Tim Murphy.

Whatever the case, the news was not welcome at all amongst Mediaworks journalists. As Simon Day describes it in the Sunday Star Times today:

Morale in the newsroom was already low. It was less than a month since John Campbell had resigned. The hiring of Glucina, the infamous gossip columnist who had attacked so many of TV3's presenters and journalists during her time at the New Zealand Herald, was the tipping point for an anxious and now enraged newsroom.

The staff were mutinous. Their protests forced head of news Mark Jennings to call an emergency newsroom meeting. In a hostile session TV3's journalists demanded to know how the appointment could have happened. Jennings promised Glucina would never set foot in the newsroom.

Some time after that, Mediaworks journalists received a group email announcing that:

Rachel Glucina is going to be leading a small but perfectly formed team to dominate entertainment news in New Zealand and beyond. This is your opportunity to be there from the beginning and help shape our digital entertainment news into the phenomenon it will undoubtedly become.

We need your energy, your drive and your skills to deliver on some bold plans.

Being sought were a news editor responsible for ensuring that "news stories have an emphasis on quality, accuracy, accessibility, best Web practices, and search engine optimisation (SEO)"; an online editor ("You will write, file, edit and promote a range of digital content on the platforms, including website, tablet, mobile app, social media and others, that will build the online presence for this major technology site"); and a social media editor "experienced in creating, curating and promoting compelling creative social content, generating web traffic, and expanding brand visibility and conversation."

The site, Scout, launches tomorrow (or today, if you're reading this on Monday), with Francis Cook, a former gallery reporter with Scoop, signed on as news editor and Patrick Gower and Duncan Garner as contributors. What Glucina will do day-to-day isn't clear.

Should be interesting……..or not  :p

Great start Rachel, what a scoop, Mike Hosking vacuuming his Ferrari as your lead story  :hahaha:


Annnnnnnd, her new workmates think it's a hoot too....

MediaWorks staff appear in open revolt at their company's new gossip website, Scout, which launched this morning with a "scoop" about Mike Hosking hoovering his Ferrari with a hand-held dustbuster on Auckland's Remuera Road.

The website, edited by former New Zealand Herald gossip columnist Rachel Glucina, went online on Monday morning ahead of a launch party at Auckland restaurant/bar Wine Chambers on Monday night. But it seems some staff from within Glucina's own organisation won't be celebrating.



Newsreader Hilary Barry was first into the fray, mocking the Hosking story with a photo of herself vacuuming her own car, with the hashtag  #stalkingisnotok


 
TV3 reporter David Farrier retweeted Barry's tweet and another mocking one, from TV3's own late-night news show, Newsworthy (which he fronts with Samantha Hayes), which read: "Exclusive: David Farrier Sits at Desk: http://tinyurl.com/DaveAtDesk".

The tweet links to a story on Newsworthy's site which consists of three increasingly zoomed in photos of a dazed Farrier.

He then followed up with tweets saying he would not be working for Scout, and if they doorstopped him, he would set his parrot Keith on them.

Comedian Eli Mathewson and media commentator Russell Brown were among others to take an early crack at the site on Twitter.

Scout, said to be a local take on E! meets TMZ, has promised sex, scandal and gossip since its announcement. Beyond the Hosking car expose, it had stories on World Cup WAGS and reality TV stars.

There's also what looks to be a regular segment called Mile high diaries, in which unnamed writers share their stories about joining the "mile high club".

In some clear cross-promotion for other MediaWorks products, "New Zealand's most fearless broadcaster", Duncan Garner (from MediaWorks' Story) takes on a high-wire challenge despite being scared of heights; socialite – and one of Glucina's well-known besties – Gilda Kirkpatrick has written a children's book; MediaWorks' Sharyn Casey teaches you how to stalk people in the supermarket.

The news editor of Scout has resigned just four days after the site launched.

Francis Cook, previously of Scoop, announced his resignation on Twitter, claiming the gossip site was "just not for me".

"I resigned from Scout yesterday. It's just not for me. But I wish them the best, and good luck to them. Crazy week. Hello Auckland."

Scout is MediaWorks' new gossip-focused  venture headed up by former New Zealand Herald reporter Rachel Glucina.

After a rapid exit by its news editor Francis Cook just four days after the site launched, more Scout employees have left their posts at the entertainment website.

Sources close to the Scout newsroom have said that since the site was launched by TV3 owners Mediaworks in September, at least eight of the original editorial team have left.



It's understood just three editorial staff remain, including the site's editor, former New Zealand Herald gossip columnist Rachel Glucina.

One source said a common thread behind the staff turnover was friction between Glucina and her staff members.

"The way she talks is not okay - everyone got fed up," the source said.

When asked for comment on the staff numbers at Scout, Glucina said she was in a meeting and hung up.

Mediaworks staff are understood to have been briefed to expect an announcement on the site's future direction later this week.

Mediaworks have yet to respond to calls for comment.
