Description:
This publication is the first to take the 'Infotainment' genre in Australia seriously. It is the only book about journalism to feature extended interviews with personalities such as Sunrise's David Koch and Melissa Doyle; The Chaser's Julian Morrow and Andrew Hansen; and The Panel's Rob Sitch and Tom Gleisner. 'Australian TV News' is the first book to fully and properly examine what viewers of 'The Chaser' and 'Sunrise' have in common, and how these programmes have influenced our attitudes towards Australian politics in the media. 'Australian TV News' explores the important role of entertainment in Australian television news over the past decade. Through the use of textual analysis, industry interviews, and audience research, it argues that 'infotainment' and satire are increasingly becoming significant methods of informing audiences about serious news issues.
The work examines the changing relationship between television news, politics, and everyday people, finding that these often humorous programmes are used by audiences as sources of political information and fact, and this book challenges traditional assumptions about what form TV news should take and what functions it ought to serve.
