TEN yet to decide on The Bolt Report

2016-01-18_1357

TEN is yet to make a decision on brand-funded programme, The Bolt Report.

The show, hosted by News Corp columnist Andrew Bolt has been on air since 2011.

Yesterday News-owned publication The Australian suggested TEN no longer wanted the show, which Bolt later denied via the Herald-Sun.

“This is not true,” he wrote.

“The issue is that my show is produced by News Corp, and several options are being considered which I can’t discuss and which I am thinking about. If anything, they involve doing more TV, not less.”

A TEN spokesperson told TV Tonight, “At this stage, a decision on a 2016 season of The Bolt Report has not been made, either way.”

The Sunday morning programme is funded by News Corporation meaning it would likely return if News agreed to buy the airtime. Nine’s Financial Review Sunday, similarly funded by Fairfax, ended last March cited as being commercially unviable.

Andrew Bolt, recently voted second Worst Male in the TVT Awards, has also been filming a documentary for ABC with the working title I Can Change Your Mind About Recognition.
