Seven News Content and Appearance


#6795

Brisbane 4pm news opener:

A different weather graphic for the recent weather in QLD

and the graphics blooper on the morning news today.

(Video starts on the weather)


#6796

Hope they don’t present the entire 6pm bulletin on location. I thought one of the purposes of a double header was the ability to have one do an OB and the other to read the rest of the days news (and as a back up) in studio.

#6798

Far out Seven sent the whole bloody newsroom, Sarah Greenhalgh is up on Fraser Island also.


#6799

Seven News Queensland is also doing a royal special at 10:30pm tonight.


#6800

Looks like a 2010/11 era graphic, judging by the font.


#6801

It’s the same style that 7NEWS Sydney uses for the sport backdrop… eek. It’s spreading :confused:


#6802

Just saw this any idea where this backdrop is from I’ve never seen if before but looks nice.


#6803

It’s what they use for national updates out of Perth, there is a quick snap of it here as well -


#6804

The newsroom in the background is actually Brisbane’s newsroom. It’s used in Perth for afternoon updates and as said the national updates from Perth.

I personally like this one better than Perth’s current afternoon news one, not sure why they insist with the blurry city ones with stupid blue Pillars.

Sussanah Carr just presented a Sydney news update, as it included several Sydney specific stories, which I thought was interesting as Seven News Perth has been on air for the last 50 minutes!


#6806

Did she have the Sydney background?


#6807

No, just this one.
It had the usual Sydney backdrop for the newsbreak opener though and three Sydney items in it.

#6809

This to me sounds like a cost cutting measure.


#6810

Generally, all updates are prerecorded right after 7pm. Also, 7 Sydney always seems to get a localised 2130 update.


#6811

Is it cost cutting though or making better use of resources? Probably both, I don’t necessarily believe this is a bad thing though. Since the Perth newsroom is the last newsroom in Australia to see the bulk of its staff leave at night it definitely makes sense to do National Updates from there.

As for this Sydney update I don’t know why they are special and get there own localised one at 9:45, although they have been doing them for a while.


#6812

Cutting costs. Perth is 3 hours behind so why have someone in the Martin Place studios when there’s a full newsroom in Perth?
Makes sense but it would be a $$ motivation not “better use of resources” - that’s a corporate spin line :wink:


#6813

So Perth is now producing national updates for the East Coast?


#6814

that’s the question I have. Perth doesn’t usually get the weather flipper so maybe that might change now?
