Seven News Presenters and Reporters

I wonder if Karl Lijnders is interested in making the move to Melbourne. He’d be a great understudy for Mitch.

I agree. He isn’t convincing being a local Melbourne reporter which is what Melb market needs.
Am sure the network will find a suitable local place.
Laurel though - more of… no yelling and all is calm.

I’m not Blake, but thanks I guess :thinking:

Not a compliment.
But good for you being you :hugs:

Apart from presenters, I also think we should take a look at Seven Melbourne’s reporters. Any that stand out to you?

Wait… they haven’t dumped any good reporters yet?

Laurel Irving, Sharnelle Vella, Cassie Zervos and Jodi Lee to name a few for me.


25/5/2020 Jacqui Felgate is back presenting sport on the Morning News today.

I can’t believe I’m doing this, but I’ve noticed the weekend figures for 7 Melbourne are falling a lot. I’m not exactly sure if presenters have anything to do with this, but: VOTE (want to see what you’d do)

@DD_Gaming I don’t think either Nick McCallum or Melina Sarris actually present.


no they dont


Nick McCallum has presented the 6pm news before, and Melina Sarris the 4pm news.

Has been a looong time since Nick McCallum last presented.

I don’t mind Mike, I think he’s a likeable and good presenter, but the problem is that Alicia is simply just better than all the ones listed above.


You mean - more familiarised with viewers than all of the above?

Familiarised too, but as a presenter, I would pick her over all those others.

The presenter isn’t the issue.

Yeah, but we all know our news services will NEVER say that content is the main issue.

It’s more than content too… it’s the brand as a total. Everything is at play, but the main issue in on weekends is the lead in. There is no AFL games and the network axed it’s local travel shows.

Take a look at the Melbourne news ratings last night. The 7 bulletin won :man_shrugging:

I think you need to read your sentence again.

I refer to weekends, I have no issue with weekdays.

But it can sometimes be the issue.

If you both are referring to my poll, I was curious to know why Seven fails on weekends. I know poor content overall contributes somewhat to the issue, but Alicia Loxley being a strong reporter and well known poses an issue for Seven Melbourne, and so I wondered if a re-setup for the cast should take place.
