Oops. Nightly News Tasmania switches to Melbourne

Seven Nightly News Tasmania was forced to switch to a Melbourne bulletin last night after suffering a big power failure, some 21 minutes into its broadcast.

After two minutes of dead air, commercials took over.

But it wasn’t until the 29 minute mark that viewers returned to news via Peter Mitchell at Seven News Melbourne.

Update: Turns out it was also the final bulletin for presenter Rachel Williams. But she returns tonight for a farewell.



  1. I always like it when the newsreader welcomes the interstate viewers and gives them the sentence of whats happened. There have been a few of Syd / Melb cross over over the years…
