In what can be called an unsurprising move Today Tonight has been axed by Channel Seven.
The move comes as no surprise given that Channel 9 had switched it’s news services to one hour a few weeks ago.
We see this as an exciting opportunity to serve our news audience in a better way,” Seven West Media Limited CEO Tim Worner says. In Adelaide and Perth, we will continue with Today Tonight where the programs serve as really important local windows.”
All staff previously working on the East Coast editions of Today Tonight will continue in their roles and will contribute to News Investigations and Features as well as TT in Adelaide and Perth under Executive Producer Max Euchtritz,” Mr Worner says.
“This move is about building and investing in Seven’s leading news coverage. In recent times we have increased our level of news across the day with great success. We plan to do even more in the future.” The shows staff are expected to be briefed today about there new roles
Seven begins the new one hour news bulletins from tonight.
