Looks like Mike Amor and Angela Cox will be hosting Seven’s coverage of the funeral tonight.

Could be Alicia Loxley or Leila McKinnon.
Mike and Angela will be a good hosting team for Seven’s coverage tonight, having worked together in the US Bureau in the past the pair should have a good rapport on air.
According to an endboard shown in Melbourne’s bulletin, Nine’s coverage will now begin at 10pm AEST rather than 11pm
5pm - 5.30 pm bulletin Queensland - originally advertised at 1 hour.
