  1. State based news, sport and weather is quite different to the national news at 7 on News 24.

    Also there is no real “doubling up” of resources.

    Crews, cameraman, directors, control room etc – they are all there at 6pm for News 24 and again at 8pm. It’s no extra cost or resources to have them do a 7pm news.

    The reports have been filed,m the content exists and the talent is there.

  2. Right, so there are enough resources to run a national ABC News on ABC News 24 at the same time each state runs a local 7pm bulletin on the main channel each night? Yes, I know that in delay states that is not the case for ABC News 24 being that it is live across the nation, but this is a double up of resouces having two separate News bulletins running on ABC TV and ABC News 24 at the same time. But there are no spare resources to run state based 7.30’s? Why not run the sate based 7pm News locally in each state on ABC News 24 at the same time as ABC TV as a simulcast to save resources?
