Axed: The Daily Edition
Exclusive: Seven cancels arvo show, with Sally Obermeder & Ryan Phelan leaving the network.
The Daily Edition has been cancelled by Seven after 7 years with presenters Sally Obermeder and Ryan Phelan leaving the network.
Seven pointed to ongoing economic pressures as the reason behind the decision. In recent months all advertorial-based shows have been particularly hard hit by the global pandemic, although some have started to see a return to advertising.
Network Director of News and Public Affairs, Craig McPherson, said: “The Daily Edition found its way onto the TV landscape seven years ago and performed exceptionally over that time. Sadly, the economics of today has led to this decision. I want to thank co-hosts Sally Obermeder and Ryan Phelan and the talented production team for all their efforts.”
TV Tonight understands a small number of full-time staff are impacted by the changes, with some redeployed into other roles in news and others -along with casuals- who will be leaving the network.
A final episode will air next Friday June 26.
