As did 7
In Queensland, both Seven and Nine (as far as I can tell) have repeated the first half of their morning shows from 10 am local time - complete with “live” bugs! So had you been watching, the fires were under control but later had started back up again; there were two live press conferences where the same info was given etc
Very, very sad news happening in Melbourne. 5 people dead. I can’t believe how this happened
