It's that time of year again. Time for my annual lament that ABC Local Radio and a huge proportion of TV time is taken over by the coverage of cricket. It's as boring as batshit to watch and listening to it just seems pointless.
There are plenty of commercial radio stations in the sports niche. Why can't the ABC leave it to them and stop interrupting normal broadcasting schedules to make way for the cricket.
With regard to television, hopefully, with digital TV, Channel 9 will have the sense to broadcast the cricket on one of it's channels and leave the rest for normal programming.... as crap as that is on Channel 9 these days. See 20 to 1.
