Network Ten and the ARIA Awards have worked out their differences and are going to try working together again.
“What can we say? We missed each other,” Ten’s chief programming officer David Mott said in a statement.
The music industry awards night had been partnered with Network Ten for 15 of the previous 16 ceremonies when the Nine Network took it on for last November’s broadcast.
But only 700,000 Australians tuned in for the Thursday night ceremony, down from 1.09 million viewers the year before.
It was one of the least-watched broadcasts in years.
“The Ten Network has been our loyal partner for many of our last 24 years and it’s an absolute thrill to be renewing our relationship once again,” ARIA chairman Ed St John said.
