WIN Corporation

WIN Corporation is a private Australian media company, that owns assets including the WIN Television network, Crawford Productions and several local radio stations. The company is based in New South Wales; the WIN brand began from a sole free-to-air terrestrial television station in Wollongong, WIN-4, owned by Television Wollongong Transmissions. In 1979, then-owner Rupert Murdoch sold his 76 per cent controlling interest in TWT to Oberon Broadcasters, a private investment group which included Paramount Television programming executive Bruce Gordon; this allowed Murdoch to purchase Sydney station TEN-10. In 1985, TWT was made public on the-then Sydney Stock Exchange as TWT Holdings Limited with Gordon retaining a 70 per cent stake. Gordon privatised the business in 1992 to become WIN Corporation. In the late 1980s, the Federal Government's television equalisation program gave Gordon the opportunity to initiate a period of growth by acquiring television stations in regional Queensland and Tasmania.

In the late 1990s, WIN acquired their South Australian station and developed a new Western Australian station from scratch. These stations were integrated into; the WIN Network covers large area s of regional Australia and has a total audience reach of 4.842 million people. Through Bruce Gordon's leadership, in the late 1990s and 2000s, WIN built stakes in PBL, Network Ten, TPG Telecom. TPG Telecom was at the time owned fellow Nine affiliate NBN Television. August 2005 saw WIN purchase a controlling 50.1 per cent stake in satellite subscription television carrier SelecTV, however failure in adequately growing the subscriber base along with high debts saw the business placed in voluntary administration in February 2011. On 21 April 2007, the board of Sunraysia Television endorsed WIN's revised offer of $163 million for Channel Nine Perth, which went through on 8 June 2007. On 30 May 2007, Southern Cross Broadcasting announced its sale of Channel Nine Adelaide to WIN for $105 million. In June 2013, WIN offloaded the Nine-branded metropolitan Adelaide station to Nine Network's parent Nine Entertainment Co. for $140 million along with an option to purchase the Perth station, exercised in September 2013.

In October 2015 WIN Corporation purchased a 14 per cent stake in Nine Entertainment Co. from investment fund operator Apollo. In 2008, WIN invested in a 50 per cent share of the Australian Poker League, buying from its founder Martin Martinez; however this stake was sold in 2012. On 4 June 2009, signalling their continued interest in digital assets, WIN increased to 18.4 per cent their stake in publicly listed company Quickflix, an Australian provider of online DVD rental and subscription movie and television series downloads. In the following years, WIN's share of the business dwindled down to 3.5 per cent as of 2014 as Quickflix continued to raise capital through issuing new shares. In April 2016, Quickflix entered voluntary administration. WIN held a long-term interest in a small cinema chain in Tasmania through a joint venture with Village Roadshow until 2013; the joint venture owned four cinemas which were branded as'Village Cinemas'. This interest was acquired by ENT Ltd. in 1988. In early 2006, WIN Corporation bought a 25% stake in the St. George Illawarra Dragons from the Illawarra Steelers for $6.5 million.

In August 2018 WIN Corporation purchased the Illawarra Steelers remaining 25% stake for a "commercially in confidence" sum, taking its stake to 50%. It was announced on 23 May 2016 that WIN Television had signed an affiliation agreement with Network Ten for a five-year period starting on 1 July 2016. WIN's former affiliation partner, Nine Network, signed with Southern Cross Austereo in April 2016 having secured a 50 per cent revenue share deal. WIN plays a prominent role in the local Illawarra community through investment in long-term naming rights to the Dragons' Wollongong home ground, WIN Stadium. WIN holds naming rights to the neighbouring WIN Entertainment Centre, home to basketball's Illawarra Hawks. In June 2019, WIN closed several newsrooms throughout New South Wales and Queensland, including Orange, Wagga and Queensland's Hervey Bay.

League Division 1 Ventforet Kofu Shonan Bellmare Oita TrinitaTeams relegated from J. League Division 2 Machida ZelviaTeams promoted to J. League Division 2 V-Varen Nagasaki Sanfrecce Hiroshima won another J. League title, raising its total league titles to seven. Yokohama F. Marinos led the campaign in the latter half of the seasons, only to lose the last two matches to Albirex Niigata and Kawasaki Frontale thus settling for second place. Frontale won third place as a result of their victory, qualifying for the AFC Champions League for the first time since 2009. Oita Trinita, promoted via the playoffs as sixth place, showed their poor preparation throughout the campaign and ended in bottom place. Júbilo Iwata was relegated as well after 20 seasons in Division 1, while Shonan Bellmare, promoted with them in 1994 and was making a cameo appearance, went down with them as well.

Kansai rivals Gamba Osaka and Vissel Kobe, having been both relegated from Division 1 in the previous season, contested a fierce battle for the second tier title, Gamba was victorious. The playoffs were won by Tokushima Vortis, which overcame Kyoto Sanga at Kokuritsu to become the first Shikoku football club to compete in the top Japanese division. FC Gifu was in bottom place for most of the season before a short burst of rejuvenation in the final weeks allowed them to climb above Gainare Tottori, left to face the playout against Kamatamare Sanuki, in what turned out to be their last season in the second tier. In spite of leading the table for most of the season, Kamatamare Sanuki slipped and was overtaken by Nagano Parceiro to the title. However, because Nagano did not fulfill the J2 stadium requirements, Sanuki was allowed to playoff against Tottori and won; this was the last season of the JFL as the third tier of Japanese football, as a new J. League Division 3 will take its place. No club was relegated to the Regional Leagues.

Tōhoku champions Grulla Morioka won the Regional Promotion Series, owing to meeting J. League Associate Membership requirements, they were allowed to be promoted to the new Division 3 instead of the fourth-tier JFL, which the other three finalists joined.

Weak (Skunk Anansie song)

"Weak" is a song by Skunk Anansie, released as their fourth single. It was the last release to be taken from their debut album Sunburnt; the song is one of Skunk Anansie's well known releases, a favourite at festivals. Skin performs a slower, more ballad-like version at many of her solo gigs; the song has been covered by Rod Stewart on his 1998 album "When We Were the New Boys". The music video was directed by duo Tongs, it is filmed from the point of view of a collapsed cameraman in what appears to be an airport hangar. The cameraman collapses behind a car which drives off to show the lead singer and the band forming to perform for the offset camera; the recording is interrupted by a little boy who, after being pulled out of the way of the camera abruptly, decides to run off with it and the band gives chase after him.
