Late night news The Latest returns to Seven from tonight, anchored by Michael Usher and Angela Cox on alternate weeknights.
“I can’t wait to get back into The Latest studio. It’s a milestone week as COVID vaccines roll out across the country. As we do every night on The Latest, we’ll have it covered in every corner of the country,” said Usher.
“We have a really engaged and loyal nightly audience, and we’re looking forward to keeping our viewers up to date in the evening.”
In 2020 the show averaged 251,000 in metro viewers, up 70% on 2019.
Last year Usher told TV Tonight, “The big point of difference with The Latest is that its content is all interviews and crosses. We don’t run reporter stories. I like to think our audience has been flat out all day and evening, and we can help them catch up on the day’s news, and give them an idea of what’s brewing in the morning, so they can go to bed up to speed. I also always try to end The Latest on a positive note. An image of thoughts that’s uplifting before the day ends.”
