I know we have the Dickies and Angela Bishops of the world, but when these big news events happen and Chris Reason is the voice of the tribute, you just know how important it is. Chills tonight.

Chris Reason did a good job tonight - for the touching tribute to Olivia Newton John.

Seven News’ coverage in Sydney (and assumedly in Melbourne and Brisbane too) was the opening story, rightly so, and lasted almost 20 minutes long.

Chris Reasons report went for over 12 minutes tonight. Very well done.

Why the hell he isn’t an anchor is beyond me. He’s one of the best reporters - for sure. But he should be anchoring The Latest every weeknight at 9.30 in an anchor/reporter position similar to US nightly news anchors.

Sam had a handful of news presenting jobs covered throughout her career: from regional news to QTQ and now to rival BTQ.

Wishing for a GC reporter to fill in when either or both Steve and Amanda are unavailable to present.

Talk about cutting it fine. Amanda Abate presented the Gold Coast news on Wednesday night, and on Thursday she gave birth! I’m sure she wasn’t expecting it to happen so soon because she said “I’ll be back tomorrow” at the end of Wednesday’s bulletin.

Looks like Blake Johnson is presenting in Melbourne tonight. I’m posting this as it’s highly unusual as both regular presenters (Bec/Mike) have just returned from holidays.
