Seven is upbeat about its performance with Seven News on the Gold Coast, presented by Amanda Abate and Rod Young.
With the bulletin having launched two years ago against a long-running local Nine News, Seven News boss Craig McPherson recently sent staff a note.
“Well done on what has so far been an exceptional year for 7News on the Gold Coast, reflected on the all-important ratings scoreboard,” he wrote.
“I’m sure you’re aware we’ve now secured 21 ratings weeks to the other mob’s 1 week.
“While there’s never a full-time whistle blown on what we do, what has been achieved by you all is significant.
“With an opposition who’ve had the rule of the land for almost 2 decades, to move ahead within 18 months of start-up is something you can all be very proud of.
“Look forward to getting up your way for a celebration soon.
“Keep it going and well done.”
