7.30


#189

Changed from blue a few months ago, I think the panels were altered a bit too. Much brighter and fresher.

I prefer the square desk to the old round one they shared with Lateline.

#191

Fairfax journalist demonstrating how little he knows about the subject matter. “Five nights a week”…


#192

Chris Urquhart freelancing at ABC for 7:30


#193

Leigh is “going away for a few weeks”, Stan Grant will be filling in for her.


#194

An old Twitter super from the previous graphics package appeared on the show tonight.


#195

Virginia Trioli hosting tonight

#197

Trioli absolutely savaged Leyonhelm. Amazing.


#198

Incredible interview.

7.30 seemed very punchy tonight with three interviews and then one lighter story after - perhaps worth exploring as an occasional format change. The days of three or four packaged stories only are surely over.

I’ve never watched 7:30 before, but I like Virginia in this format much more than I do on News Breakfast and thought she did a great job overall.

Leigh approved :joy:


She impressed others as well
Virginia is also hosting tonight.


#204

I’m still waiting for Emma Alberici to fill in for Leigh Sales. She should be the main fill in for 7.30 Report.


#205

This is how interviews should be done. When the interviewee indulges in answer evasion, interviewer needs to keep pursing. Trioli did this perfectly. Steve Austin does similar on ABC Brisbane.


#206

A while ago now, but Emma was a regular fill-in for Kerry O’Brien for 7.30 Report before she was Europe correspondent.


#207

They should have a Melbourne Set (as a back up) for Virginia and others to present from. The show could still be controlled from Sydney.


#208

Stan Grant hosting tonight.
