Angela Cox is joining Michael Usher on the Seven News desk on weekends.

Starting Boxing Day, Cox and Usher will co-present Seven News 6pm Sydney bulletin across the summer while Ferguson takes break.

From late January, they will then return to co-hosting weekend editions on Friday and Saturday evenings alongside sports anchor Matt Shirvington and weather presenter Sally Bowrey. Both will continue their hosting roles on The Latest and anchoring live news coverage and special reports for the network.

Mark Ferguson will return to the news desk from Sunday, 24 January 2021 alongside sports anchor Mel McLaughlin and weather presenter Angie Asimus.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Michael at the desk,” said Cox.

“He’s an outstanding newsman and a good bloke with a surprisingly cheeky sense of humour. We’ve worked together closely over the years particularly on The Latest, and most recently Seven’s US election coverage.

“Mush shares my unrelenting passion for good storytelling which is reliable and responsible.”

Usher added: “I love working with Ange. We’ve covered hours of live coverage together this year – on The Latest, during rolling coverage and live specials for the bushfire crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic, and more recently, on the US Election. She’s a hard-working journalist. We make a great team.”

Director, 7News Sydney, Jason Morrison, said: “Michael and Angela have the experience and have earned the respect of our audience. Together they’ll bring even more strength to our weekend news and be a great back-up for Mark Ferguson.

“Angela has done the hard yards and been with 7News from her start in television journalism. It is great to see her achieve one of the most senior positions in the newsroom.”

    1. They did the same during the year in the Perth market. Angela Tsun read weekend news on her own for ages but they decided to add Tim McMillan and do a dual hosting format.

      In the past when they had two weekend anchors in Emmy Kubanski and Blake Johnson they job shared alternating weekends.
