Definitely not Channel 9 or 7. They have extended their programs to an hour but really the still don't have an hours worth of content. It's filled previews of stories to follow, recaps and of course live reports..."we'll cross live now to our reporter on the scene" in which the reporter will recap what has just been said when really they should be saying, "well I've got nothing new to report, something happened here a few hours ago but I'll make you think that by being here I know something that the other news outlets don't.
Nine is the best, IMO. Has been since TV first aired with Hugh Cornish reading.
Enjoy 'listening' to Lofty & Melissa, as they've very good 'speaking' voices.
Can't stand the girl on ABC news, or SBS. Seven, I don't watch at all, anytime!
One of the current best was David Kurnow. And the ABC took him off! Idiots! The BEST ever on Oz TV, IMO, were James Dibble & Bruce Webster. They certainly used RP, & we're just tremendous to listen to.
As a S & D student of many years' to Licentiate, to me, voices have to be pleasant, with good enunciation, & non-grating to the ear.
I think THE worst voice I've ever heard on TV was Fran Drescher. Aaaarrrrgh! Just the pits! Couldn't listen to it for ANY length of time, no matter how short it was!
As 'speaking' is one part to acting, it amazes me how some people get a nod to act in a show, with terrible voices. The 'Radio Stars' of yesteryear all had voices you'd no problem listening to for the length of their show.
Just listen in a shopping centre to some women speak. Their voices are raucous, & 'un-educated'. Or 'witnesses' being interviewed on News TV. Can't understand a word they say, as is coupled with accents, & 'lazy' speech, usually.
