On August 18, 2006 WIN Television announced that Griffith's locally produced news bulletin would be axed and merged with Wagga Wagga's half-hour bulletin.

On January 30, 2006 the network's Tasmanian news bulletins were moved from separate local and national bulletins to a single, half-hour bulletin featuring local, national and international news. This was reported by "The Hobart Mercury" as being due to the previous arrangement's poor ratings. WIN's main competitor in the area, "Southern Cross Nightly News", had, at the time, a 64.9% share of the 6.00pm news audience during the 2005 survey period.
