Nah NITV is part of SBS, ie is carried on their transmission services. NITV management pulled the pin.



NITV said times had changed. The free-to-air channel, otherwise known as National Indigenous Television, has been managed by SBS since 2012 and syndicates content from indigenous broadcasters in New Zealand, North America and northern Europe. “The Marngrook footy show has been an important part of NITV’s schedule for 12 years," said NITV manager Tanya Orman.

"The media landscape has changed significantly over that time, and we have to make difficult decisions about how we spend our limited budgets across our programming. "While it was a difficult decision to make after such a long run, NITV remains committed to delivering quality AFL coverage from a uniquely Indigenous perspective. We are looking at formats for a new show that will join our existing sports coverage."

There are a number of female presenters at Fox Footy other than Neroli that have been getting more and more on screen time over recent years - Kelli Underwood, Sarah Jones, Kath Loughnan, Sarah Olle.

I'd heard prior to this that for whatever reason Neroli wasn't the most popular figure at Fox Footy. Must be some truth to that.

I’ve heard the opposite.

Jesus Neroli will be OK, I won't cry into my pillow over someone on several hundred K a year just from TV deals having to look for another one whilst still having plum radio and presumably writing gigs. The stark facts are is she doesn't add anything to the actual games and that's where the bread and butter of their content is, actual football game telecasts. She does some good interviews yes but it (to Foxtel) is filler content to be able to run the channel 24/7 without just game replays non stop. People aren't going to buy a sub for that and it's also something other people can do.

They could also save some coin pissing off Ed
