I have been forecasting this announcement from when Packer and Murdoch (owners of Fox Sports) bought into Ten recently. It was inevitable.

According to the Canberra Times article on it this morning, the "general content" will be Mon-Fri, possibly leaving it open that One will be round-the-clock sport, or mainly sport, on the weekends.
Quote
Ten announced yesterday that ONE ... would be relaunched from May 8 with a Monday-to-Friday line-up featuring general entertainment programs designed to appeal to males aged between 25 and 45.
...
Premium sport, such as Australian Football League matches, Formula One and MotoGP would remain, but be mostly shown at the weekend.

The CT business section where this appeared doesn't appear to be on the CT Web pages.
