Nine’s Today show is claiming the year in Sydney, having won 21 of 40 weeks.
That puts it in an unbeatable position to Sunrise in terms of weekly wins.
The breakfast show already claimed the year in Melbourne a few weeks ago.
Executive Producer Tom Malone says the team is thrilled with its Sydney victory. “We’ve fought long and hard to make the Today show Sydney’s Number 1 choice for breakfast television, and we’re delighted that the viewers are happy with the job we’re doing. The challenge is to keep doing it – every morning!”
Lisa Wilkinson added, “The viewers are the reason we get up every morning, and for them to make us their first choice for their breakfast news and entertainment is extremely humbling.”
Nine was close to winning Sydney just before the Olympics with 20 wins, but was then off air for two. With another win last week it sealed the victory, all up it will mean having been on air for 38 of 40 survey weeks.
Nine News has already claimed the year in both Sydney and Melbourne in weeks won with A Current Affair also having won Melbourne.
The news is not all bad for Seven with Sunrise, Today Tonight and Seven News all in front at a national level.
