Seven Queensland General Manager, Ben Roberts-Smith VC MG, says the team has received a tremendous response from the local community. “The people in our Darling Downs community deserve a choice in local news and we’re about to deliver that,” he said.
“It has been part of our long-term strategic plan to complement our existing Local News services across our six other regions. No one is more thrilled than us that we can finally say the day has come.
“We have a very professional and highly-regarded local team in place that has the complete backing and support of our regional network. We are committed to delivering the best local news service in the region and we’ll do the hard yards to earn the trust,” says Roberts-Smith.
Seven Queensland, owned and operated by the Seven Network, is the number one regional network in Australia with local news services produced weeknights in Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Central Queensland, Wide Bay, the Sunshine Coast and now Toowoomba. Twice as many Queenslanders get their local news from Seven Local News than any other television source. Now it’s time for the Toowoomba community.
