I remember the days when the “Last Race – Final Football” edition of the Herald arrived at the suburban newsagent on Saturday evenings at about 6.30 pm with the final football results from that afternoon’s games. And sometimes a “4 am edition” of the Age would be on the breakfast table if something newsworthy had happened overnight.
This week, the plane involved in the unfortunate crash in the French Alps lost contact with the ground before 8.53 pm (Tuesday evening, local time here). I heard about it on the radio while driving a little after 10 pm. And the Herald-Sun had it all over the front page on Wednesday morning.
Did I read somewhere that the deadline for the Age is now 5.30 pm?
