Television rating war is intensifying between rival networks Channel 7 and Channel 9. A popular host of the Channel 7 program Sunrise, David “Kochie” Koch has been surrounded by a small but vocal group of protesters during his regular meeting with the public just around 9am outside the Channel 7 studios. Reportedly, David has commented later on TV that this looked like a stunt organised by the rival TV network. I have to say the protest looked very well organised and not very spontaneous. Just look at these professionally made boards.
David Koch has handled the protesters with utmost professionalism. He has listened to them, and asked one of the security guards to take notes of their names and issues promising to follow it up. One of the protesters have said to a TV crew that he was satisfied Koche will do the right thing.
Channel 9’s A Current Affair has advertised later on the day to bring a report on the issue.
