Take a peek behind the scenes at our brand new, world class studio. Soon to launch on Ticker NEWS.
It’s been a long time coming. Regular viewers and followers of Ticker will know we have gone through a lot of transformations in our nearly two year journey since August 19 2019 and now.
We began in a tiny co-working space in Melbourne’s CBD. In March last year, it was time to move on in to a warehouse studio in Richmond.
But within a year, that “new home” suddenly felt rather cramped. With 20 staff, and about six sets later, our growth phase brought us to Port Melbourne.
Ever since we moved in two months ago, we have been working on a new set design which is truly world class.
Designed by iconic Australian TV set designer Mal Nichols, and built by Richwood Projects, the new Ticker set will make viewers feel like they’ve dropped into a studio that belongs in New York or London.
Featuring concrete beams, Scandinavian wood features, and huge LED screens that covers an entire wall, the new studio is currently under construction in Melbourne’s south east.
Beating lockdown, I got the chance to visit the new set as it received its first coat of paint. Turning lots of plywood and timber into an elegant design.
The new set will take Ticker to the next level, on top of our new premises and updated apps and website. The studio will feature four cameras, including an automated jib. Hosts will have a number of presenting options for Ticker NEWS and Ticker ORIGINALS programming.
The LED wall is among the most advanced in Australia and will allow us to take viewers closer into the story.
Ticker has grown from humble beginnings into a multimedia news and information company, with a monthly reach of over 4.5 million viewers.
It hasn’t been easy but it’s been a hell of a lot of fun. Stay tuned for more progress pics and of course the big reveal.
Adidas faces potential $320M Yeezy shoe write-off post-Kanye split
Adidas is contemplating a significant financial blow as it considers writing off $320 million worth of Yeezy shoes following its separation from music and fashion icon Kanye West.
The sportswear giant’s decision to sever ties with West’s Yeezy brand has left a mountain of unsold merchandise, threatening to dent the company’s balance sheet.
The partnership between Adidas and Kanye West, which began in 2013, had been immensely successful, with Yeezy shoes becoming a highly sought-after fashion statement.
However, recent controversies and disagreements between West and Adidas prompted the sportswear company to distance itself from the celebrity designer.
The massive inventory of Yeezy shoes now presents a dilemma for Adidas, as it grapples with finding a solution to deal with the surplus stock. A $320 million write-off could significantly impact the company’s financial performance in the short term.
Adidas is currently exploring various options, including discounting, donating, or repurposing the unsold inventory to mitigate the financial hit.

MrBeast’s monumental 100 African wells sparks controversy
Philanthropic YouTuber MrBeast, known for his outlandish and extravagant charity stunts, recently financed the construction of 100 wells in Africa, providing clean drinking water to thousands of people.
While the philanthropic gesture is commendable on the surface, it has ignited a wave of controversy and criticism from various quarters.
Critics argue that MrBeast’s approach, although well-intentioned, might not be the most sustainable solution to Africa’s water crisis.
They question the long-term viability of these wells, raising concerns about maintenance and local ownership. Some have even labelled it as a publicity stunt, arguing that it merely scratches the surface of a much deeper issue.
On the other hand, MrBeast’s supporters laud his efforts in raising awareness and mobilising his enormous following to contribute to a worthy cause. They argue that any effort to alleviate the water crisis is a step in the right direction.
In the end, whether MrBeast’s 100 wells in Africa are a game-changing philanthropic success or a mere spectacle remains a subject of intense social debate.
