Weekend Sunrise has eye on Cyclone Ului

When it comes to cyclone coverage, Weekend Sunrise left Weekend Today in its trail yesterday.

As Cyclone Ului bore down on the Queensland coast Seven’s morning show went live into the the state, instead of the usual one hour delay that comes with Daylight Saving. It also broadcast for an extra hour from 10-11am Sydney time / 9-10am Queensland.

Meanwhile Today broadcast its usual 3 hour show on delay into Queensland with updates that were 60 minutes old.


  1. Channel Seven had the advantage of having owned a news bureau office in Mackay. It a simple phone call to the station manager 🙂

  2. Weekend Today is an absolute car crash. From the hosts to the format to the set; it is a truly horrible show.
