Sunrise adds live Queensland bulletins
Tailor-made news by Queensland for Queensland, every 30 minutes.
With Daylight Saving now in effect Sunrise is delivering Queensland viewers live local news bulletins from tomorrow.
This addresses an annual problem in the Sunshine state every time AEDT kicks in.
Queensland correspondent Bianca Stone will deliver the local bulletins live from Seven’s Brisbane headquarters and crosses to reporters, with significant investment in local reporters, producers, camera crews and technicians.
Executive Producer, Michael Pell, said: “Queensland is a market of vital importance to Sunrise. Viewers in the Sunshine State have been loyal to the show for decades. But for six months of the year, the concept of running hour-old, networked news to five million residents, has bothered us.
“This is our solution: Queensland news bulletins, live and local every 30 minutes, made in Queensland, by Queenslanders, for Queenslanders. Viewers will still see the main show and the national headlines. But every half hour, and whenever news is breaking, Queensland will get its own tailor-made coverage. Queensland will see all the rapidly-changing, critical information, first on Sunrise.”
Bianca Stone said: “Right now, it’s never been more important to know what’s happening in your own backyard, your suburb, your city, your state. With information changing by the minute, the only way that news can be delivered is live.”
Natalie Barr, said: “There’s nothing like feeling informed and on top of everything in a world that seems to be changing so much. Our Sunrise Queensland-only news will get your day started right. It’s a game-changer – a dedicated local news service like no other.”
David Kochie added: “Never before has it been more important for our viewers to have instant access to the latest news which affects their lives, no matter their time zone. That’s our commitment – to deliver the best news service wherever you live.”
Live from 5.30am weekdays on Seven.
