Quash any annual talk of rumours, Seven has no plans to resume Today Tonight on the East Coast.
Seven Head of Programming Angus Ross recently told TV Tonight, “We’re absolutely rapt with how Seven News is going. It’s the #1 news service in the country, with an hour news service in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane working really well. Obviously The Chase is on absolute fire, leading into it.
“Seven News is #1 so we’re not going to do anything to tamper with that, other than pushing harder to extend our dominance and keep improving in Sydney & Melbourne.
“Home and Away at 7:00 is an extremely important show for us, and funnels a very important audience into our primetime schedule. As we always say, they are our bricks in the wall. They’re not going anywhere,” he said.
“5:00 and 6:00 are both up in audience, year on year. It’s a good story to tell.”
Today Tonight still airs locally in Adelaide and Perth where it consistently wins its timeslot.
