Seven is tipped to screen a one hour news service this Monday night.
Whether this is a one-off for the Australia Day holiday (and the first night for MKR) or a sign of things to come is unknown. But the whispers are it’s the latter.
Seven recently announced Helen Kapalos had quit TT to join Sunday Night, but said there were no current changes planned for Seven News or Today Tonight.
As an indication of just how quickly things change, a week earlier a Seven spokesperson had told TV Tonight Kapalos was staying put.
Seven has recently been broadcasting a 40 minute news service and replaced its long-standing Seven News theme. It’s in the mood for change.
There have also been suggestions that local TT editions in Adelaide and Perth may stay put, where they reign supreme.
But while networks are out to confuse the competition, they’re also at risk of confusing the audience.
