Seven News Content and Appearance


#3186

Current Promo for David Brown’s Weather airing here in Sydney:

Still running the rather questionable “Sydney’s Only News Meteorologist” line! Seven are aware of Graham Creed, aren’t they?


#3187

They said they had the most accurate weather, not factually correct promos. Technically they can get away with it.


#3188

With the new ratings starting Sunday week are there likely to be any changes to 7 news presentation Etc


#3189

Good point, hopefully the elements from the Better Homes and Gardens promo come to the On-Air Presentation, and also Hoges: The Paul Hogan Story premieres this Sunday :+1:


#3190

No.

Personally, I can see the current On-Air Presentation for Seven News being used for all of this year. The current graphics were only launched in July/August last year!


#3191

Oh wait, I thought he was referring to Seven’s On-Air Presentation. Sadly, I doubt a change to the News graphics so soon, but hopefully it’s more often in the future than a few years later…


#3192

Please don’t put blue…


#3193

A red, black and white combo sounds nice… :sunglasses::+1:


#3194

Since the general channel/network On-Air Presentation was given a bit of a shake up at the start of 2016 after using the previous branding for a few years, I don’t see much changing there this year.

I agree. Personally, I think I’d prefer to see some more technological upgrades made at Seven (ie, keeping up with Nine by producing/airing as much of the news in HD as possible) before introducing any new graphics.


#3195

Seven should try and learn from Nine in every aspect, with the exception of moving to automation. But sadly I think that’s gonna happen one day…


#3196

Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth are all automated.


#3197

I prefer the current Seven News graphics to Nine - they take up a lot less screen real estate and are missing the pointless white rectangle in the bottom left corner.


#3198

I agree. Seven News has cleaner graphics than Nine News IMO.


#3199

I doubt Martin Place will ever be automated. The studio space is just too small and too complex for it to work.


#3200

Speaking of graphics, someone did say they saw on screen graphics for news during programming in Perth. This was captured a few days ago, very unusual for Perth these types of things are generally left for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane but I guess there trying to be somewhat consistant.


#3201

Yes I agree.

Unfortunately, I think there’s probably going to be a time in the medium-long term future when Seven will say goodbye to the Martin Place studios in favour of a cheaper, more automation-friendly location.


#3202

Maybe the heat has just got to my head, but something weird going on in Adelaide tonight. No wide shots of the studio, a live cross that would usually be done in studio was done via green screen, presenter shots look kind of keyed. Interesting to see Today Tonight in a few minutes.


#3203

I wish Seven News Adelaide (and Nine News Adelaide for this case) actually did less OBs for weather and more in-studio weather.

BTW the studio is seen in sports.


#3204

Seven Adelaide was exclusively in studio weather before Amelia took over from Melody. I like the OBs, mixes it up a bit.

They had a three presenter shot in the crosses to and from sport, but something still feels a bit different.


#3205

Maybe because no reporter want to stay outside in 40 degrees heat. I should also mention that it is still 41 degrees in Adelaide.
