Assuming there’s no extra bulletins tonight because it’s a Friday?

Now is when The Latest on 7 should be going live.

As at 8pm AEDT/7pm AEST:

As you’d expect from a news channel.

Always find these threads a little bit uneasy especially being made whilst events are unfolding. Guess it’s a type of disaster porn.

Exactly my point @BigVic two appropriate threads already exist for coverage to this point.

I was watching the ad break during the Federation Cup match and Nine News provided breaking news on the NSW and QLD bushfires. It is confirmed that 2 people have been killed and more than 150 homes have been destroyed.

ABC News Channel simulcasting the NSW bulletin for the second night in a row.

Any plans for a Nine News bulletin after Star Wars?

I doubt they’d bother late at night on a Saturday (when almost nobody is watching). Plus The Last Crusade is a national ratings drawcard.

Seven’s decision is extremely late, wouldn’t be surprised if wrong promo PRGs/promos go to air tonight, depends how well they relayed into to NPC. They also have the advantage of having an established lat news service and Michael Usher who presents it already there for Seven’s weekend News Sydney.
