Being advertised via scroller and ads for Tasmania too so I’d assume we’re getting it as well. I wonder if this sort of stuff would have been happening back when Southern Cross had more control.
That means NT could get the bulletin as well as it relays Seven Melbourne’s signal.
Central South is also getting it.
More than likely!
Would love this at 9.30pm every night.
Musher acknowledged the wrong spelling of Morwell before the second cross tonight.
I feel like Seven should trial The Latest at 9.30 for 2 weeks in 2 markets - maybe Melbourne & Perth - then run the numbers against the averaged 9.30-10.30 slot for the last 12 months.
How can they? MKR runs to 9pm to 9.15pm or later every night. There are no normal timeslots any more.
Well at 9 / 9.16 - whatever just earlier. 2 weeks. 2 markets. to compare against entertainment programming at the same time
Interesting. Hopefully the new EP will keep The Latest true to its roots going forward.
And it seems that Sean has less of a role with The Latest, going by the below tweet. Maybe this leaves open the potential that he’ll get a chance to influence the rest of the 7News branding at some point?? This’d get my vote
Put him as the Director of News instead of McPherson. He would do a 10x better job than what McPherson has dished up.

It will be airing tonight at 9:45pm to cover the events in Christchurch
That’s a repeated interview from Sydney’s 6PM news, and was introduced as such.
The Australian had an article about the show in today’s media section. Something which it revealed was that Craig McPherson (Seven’s Director of News and Current Affairs) starting thinking about potentially launching a late night bulletin after the network did a few special bulletins surrounding the Thai cave rescue last year. How Michael Usher came to host ‘The Latest’ was that he was ‘enthusiastic’ about the idea and agreed to work with McPherson to launch it.

The Latest at the earlier time of 10pm on Federal budget night.
The Latest only ran for 18 minutes in Syd last night but it was scheduled as normal for 30 minutes.
