The Seven News title card with Mark Ferguson.


Extremely close zoom in to pretend that it is the sitting position, just before a report was introduced standing. Seems to be even closer than when they have done such thing previously.

Any mention by John Mangos on the 4:30 news today of the bulletin returning to 30minutes from Monday?

No, there was no mention of the end of the 1 hour format, everything was presented as normal.
Video of highlights of the final 1 hour 4.30 News.

Adam Boland tweet from a couple of days ago:

Just heard about Ken's At Kensington closing - an icon of the gay community and venue of a very sad chapter in TV news.

And sad that the disgusting Adam Walters still calls himself a journalist.

If Seven wanted inspiration on GFX and Sets, look no further.

That set is beautiful but with budgets being slashed at Seven I don't think we'll be seeing a new set for a very long time.

Some of the best designs are born from challenging spaces, WNBC's set is very nice but there's no escaping how incredibly small the studio is. Seven Sydney's studio is limited in a very different way; they're essentially confined to one dimension as they don't have the space for a traditional 3-walled, square set.

As NewsWeary said, their recent cost cutting kills any idea of a relaunch in Sydney aimed at bringing back old viewers. Seven Melbourne are still in their ancient set, though judging from Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide's efforts I wouldn't be expecting anything as good as WNBC's if they were to refresh their presentation.

That is one of very vey very few local stations in the US that have a "network look & feel" look to their local news, jun terms of graphics and sets.

Quite a few of the NBC O&Os have relaunched with a look identical to the NY one.

Seven is in trouble with its news! They can say "it's a competitive market, but we're not worried" but they are practically loosing Melbourne more and more each week.
To me at the moment pushing aside the slogan copying, Nine news is a clean looking brand. Their sets and on graphics match in all states, and they jumped on the social media interraction quickly. Although both networks are guilty of the tabloid style junk news, out of the two I think 9NEWS has stepped up and become the better of the two.

Seven on the other hand looks old, tired and a mess in terms of a presntation, heck the graphics look like some cheap rip off from the 90s and the sets are all over the place around the country. The national set is a joke, a 2D cardboard cutout in my eyes and the Melbourne set although it has served us well, is tired and shows the age of the 7NEWS brand. To me 7NEWS use to be a sleek and classy bulletin, however the last two years it has become a mess, I have even switched over to 9NEWS a lot of the time because it looks fresh and the stories they present are of a higher standard.

I think Seven got to the point that they were winning by such a large margin, that they forgot to keep their competing strength up. They have let their guard down and are now trying to make up for that, however it's too late and the attempts they are making to do this, in my eyes are the wrong ones.

I am generally classified as a 7 fanboy, and I admit it so I'm not part of the 9 PR team haha

Straight to sport with Jim Wilson after the 6:00 News preview on 4.30 News. There was no sport when the bulletin was originally 30 minutes until 2010.

No cross to Westpac for finance, just read by Mark Ferguson.

With the 4.30 News returning back to 30 minutes on Monday because of TPIR, I wonder if there will be no sports segment. Before the bulletin was extended to an hour, there was no sports segment and the bulletin was mostly news.


On today's 4.30 Bulletin,No intro from Mark to Jim Wilson who still presented sports,a much shorter segment of course.David Brown still presenting national weather in the bulletin.

Was a waste of time crossing to Westpac for someone to read finance anyway,newsreader in studio can do it just as well.

4:30 News back in 30 Minute format. It is better this way, 1 hour is simply too long on most days to put in decent content, but half an hour is fine, no room for those fluffy stories.

Totally agree,I preferred the shorter bulletin.

I prefer the half hour bulletin, but I prefer the half hour bulletin of the David Johnston era. No sport, a point of difference.
