The Latest

The coverage about the Sydney storms was very good and it shows the advantage of a late bulletin. Michael Usher is a great presenter, but it slightly bothers me how he interupts reporters, seems like they may be rushing a bit. However, I like the fast paced format and wouldn’t really like it if it became a 1 hour bulletin. Maybe a 45 minute bulletin would be good for something not too long and not too rushed.

Yeah they could add another half hour, do a little sport, a weather preview and look at tomorrow’s papers.

I wonder if Nine or Ten relaunch late bulletins if they’ll copy the live cross instead of pre-packaged reports concept.


#226

Different music throwing to the break.


#227

… and I liked it!


#228

Sean Power the producer who is responsible for the formation of this broadcast deserves to be recognised because he is highly talented and has taken 7 News in a new direction with this. I look forward to seeing more.


#229

It was terrible!!!


#230

Very good bulletin, I’m enjoying watching it. I prefer it over their 6pm news!


#231

Forgive, but I only just realised this is broadcasting on the weekend as well?? Wow.


#232

Missed it, was it the piano based tune that they just aired when returning from the break?


#233

Pretty much.


#234

Yeah essentially.
Sounded better coming back from the break.


#235

At least they’re diametrically opposed to each other despite being in the same party.

Senator Molan at least had a point with his military experience in the Middle East. I’m not sure why Vanstone is there other than Shorten bashing.


#236

The music sounds quite upbeat and energetic, might be more suited for Sunrise.


#237

Yeah I agree. Doesn’t really fit the late night.


#238

Didn’t really see the point of the Amanda Vanstone interview!
Thought that the Jim Molan interview was quite informative however.


#239

Should have been a political reporter.


#240

To be fair, Molan was there for his Military past not really for his politics.


#241

The show was good tonight. It’s a seriously good news broadcast and probably the first 7 news show I’ve watched in a long time.

That music was used for the rest of the bulletin FYI.


#242

Tonight was much better. Particularly the first segment. Stories from right across the country.

Didn’t feel as messy and chaotic.

But I won’t be continuing to watch if they keep using that ridiculous music they just randomly started using. Stupid.


#243

Tonight’s broadcast was great. A great selection of stories from around the country. First story about the storms with Alex Hart was good as has been mentioned. A lot of thought and effort has been put into it and it shows on air. Michael Usher is really good and it suits him. I can also see Mel Doyle doing a good job on it also.

I must be the only one that actually liked the music they randomly started using :joy:
