Gallery: Seven News Gold Coast launch


On Monday Seven Chairman Kerry Stokes and Seven Group Holdings CEO Ryan Stokes joined network CEO Tim Worner and Seven Queensland General Manager Ben Roberts-Smith for the launch of Seven News on the Gold Coast.

Presenters Rod Young, Katie Brown and Paul Burt were joined by production staff, ahead of a timeslot win with a 49,000 average viewers, ahead of Nine News Gold Coast with 34,000 average viewers.




    • As I understand it Seven Gold Coast has moved “The Chase Australia” to 4.30 pm to accommodate Local News at 5.30 pm and Seven News (1 hour) at 6.00 pm. I would like to see them replicate this for the Sunshine Coast. At the moment Seven edits the main news to 30 minutes which, discounting sport & weather, gives us about four stories over 12 minutes. Thankfully, being retired, I am able to watch a decent block of news from 4.00 to 5.00 pm.

      • If you don’t like the news service provided on one channel why don’t you flick over to another. WIN has an unedited hour long Ten Eyewitness News at 5:00, WIN local news at 6:00, and The Project at 6:30. Even before the changes last week you would have had 9’s hour long news at 6:00 then WIN local news at 7:00.
