Seven has confirmed a new late night bulletin, The Latest, to be hosted by Michael Usher, making it one of the few late night bulletins on Free to Air.
Usher previously presented Nightline on Nine.
Seven Network Director of News and Public Affairs, Craig McPherson, said: “The time is right to have a nightly news programme post 6pm.
“The Latest will be exactly what the title says. Big stories of the day develop throughout the night and many stories are breaking. We’ll be live to wherever we need to be. It will be a destination for Australians to get the very latest on the happenings at home and abroad as well as digging deeper on key issues.”
It will launch at 10.30pm on Wednesday 19 December, straight after the first Big Bash League clash.
