Seven knows news

By 7NEWS, Kickstart 2022, SEVEN

7NEWS, Sunrise, The Morning Show, 7NEWS Spotlight #1 in 2021

Australia’s #1 line-up of news and public affairs content will return to the Seven Network in 2022, with 7NEWS, Sunrise, Weekend Sunrise, The Morning Show, 7NEWS Spotlight, The Latest from 7NEWS and 7NEWS.com.au set to keep the nation informed and educated.

The most trusted evening news bulletin, 7NEWS, ranks #1 nationally this year with an average 1.65 million viewers nationally Monday to Friday, 1.38 million on Saturdays and 1.69 million on Sundays.

7NEWS dominates the Perth and Adelaide markets, while on the East Coast it has halved the gap on its main rival and recorded its highest audience share since the one-hour news bulletin started in 2014. In fact, 7NEWS Sydney and 7NEWS Melbourne have achieved their highest shares since 2010.

From Sunrise and The Morning Show, to 7NEWS at 6pm and The Latest, and everything in between, Seven delivers the best, most comprehensive and most watched news and public affairs content on Australian TV.

In front of and behind the camera, our people do an amazing job, producing more than 5,300 hours of news and public affairs content a year and bringing Australians all the local, national and international news they need to know.

“That’s why 7NEWS has been #1 nationally for the past six years, Sunrise has been #1 for 18 years and The Morning Show has been #1 for 14 years.

Craig McPherson, Seven’s Director of News and Public Affairs

The success of 7NEWS is led by the winning teams of Mark Ferguson, Michael Usher, Mel McLaughlin and Angie Asimus in Sydney; Peter Mitchell, Tim Watson, Jane Bunn and Mike Amor in Melbourne; Sharyn Ghidella, Max Futcher, Tony Auden and Shane Webke in Brisbane; Susannah Carr, Rick Ardon and Samantha Jolly in Perth; Jane Doyle, Mark Soderstrom and Amelia Mulcahy in Adelaide; and Amanda Abate and Steve Titmus on the Gold Coast.

The Latest from 7NEWS with Michael Usher and Angela Cox has become essential late-night viewing for many Australians, winning its timeslot each weeknight. It returns in 2022.

7NEWS Spotlight had a remarkable 2021, delivering ground-breaking and high-rating reports including The Phenomenon, Craig McLachlan, Delta On Board, Martin Bryant’s Dark Secrets, Fight Of His Life, Saving Candice and Ride Of Your Life.

The Phenomenon drew almost 1.2 million viewers nationally, while the Craig McLachlan and Martin Bryant investigations were both watched by more than 1.1 million people.

The 7NEWS Spotlight specials dominated their timeslot. They will return in 2022 with more exclusive, ground-breaking and, at times, heart-wrenching investigations.

7NEWS Specials were another important part of Seven’s news line-up this year, including the news-breaking Ivan Milat: Buried Secrets and The Disappearance of William Tyrrell.

7NEWS.com.au continues to draw new, younger Australians to the 7NEWS brand and ranks as the #1 news website among people aged under 40.

Sunrise ruled breakfast television again in 2021, winning every week of the year and ranking #1 for the 18th consecutive year. Each weekday, Sunrise reaches 990,000 Australians, with an average national audience of 458,000, 40% more than its closest rival.

Sunrise will be back in 2022, with co-hosts David Koch and Natalie Barr, sports presenter Mark Beretta, newsreader Edwina Bartholomew, weatherman Sam Mac and Weekend Sunrise co-hosts Monique Wright and Matt Doran presenting all the latest news, sport and weather.

In the mornings, The Morning Show has been #1 for 14 years in a row. Co-hosts Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies are the undisputed stars of daytime TV, and they will be back next year to keep Australia informed, entertained and inspired.

This year was an extraordinary year for news and Seven brought Australians everything they needed to know. Our news and public affairs teams work very hard to earn and keep our viewers’ trust and we’re honoured to be number one.

Next year with be another big year for news, both here – as Australia emerges from lockdown and heads into a Federal election – and around the world, and Seven will be there to cover it all.

Queensland’s all-new Sunrise

By 7NEWS

Wake up to your only live and local news

Australia’s #1 brekky show, Sunrise, will broadcast all-new live and local news bulletins exclusive to Queensland from Monday.

In a breakfast television first, to coincide with the start of daylight saving in the southern states, the comprehensive local bulletins will bring viewers all of Queensland’s news live every half hour from 6am local time – while competing services remain on delay.

In addition to the national news with Nat, Kochie and the team at Brekky Central, Sunrise’s Queensland correspondent Bianca Stone will deliver the local bulletins live from Seven’s Brisbane headquarters, crossing to reporters wherever news is breaking across the Sunshine State.

The new Queensland-only bulletins represent a significant investment in local reporters, producers, camera crews and technicians – all to keep Queenslanders up to date.

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.

Michael Pell, Sunrise Executive Producer

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.

Natalie Barr, Sunrise co-host

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.

Sunrise welcomes Aussie legends to its Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 coverage

By Olympics

Sunrise has bolstered breakfast television’s #1 team with a cavalcade of Aussie sporting greats as part of its special coverage of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.

With the most anticipated Olympic Games ever now just days away, the Seven Network has announced Natalie Barr, David Koch and the Sunrise team will be joined by a panel of Australian Olympic icons led by Grant Hackett, Stephanie Rice, Sally Pearson, Giaan Rooney, Jana Pittman, John Steffensen, Shane Heal and Stuart O’Grady.

Fellow Olympic greats James Tomkins, Matthew Mitcham and Tom Burton will also be part of Sunrise’s coverage throughout the Games, along with 2012 ASP World Tour Champion Joel Parkinson as surfing makes its Olympic debut in Tokyo.

Australia’s greatest Olympian, five-time Gold medallist Ian Thorpe, will also join Nat and Kochie for several live crosses throughout the Games, while Sunrise’s own Mark Beretta will be live on the ground in Tokyo to bring viewers all the latest news, colour and atmosphere from the host city. Plus, Edwina Bartholomew will co-host Seven’s afternoon coverage of Tokyo 2020 alongside Olympian and 7NEWS presenter Matt Shirvington.

The families of our Olympians obviously cannot be in Tokyo for the Games, but a host of them will join Sunrise to lead Australia’s cheer squad back home.

Sunrise is the only place to wake up across the entire 17 days of Tokyo 2020. With an unrivalled panel of Aussie Olympic legends, Beretts at the centre of all the action in Tokyo and live competition as it gets underway each day, Nat, Kochie and the team will have all your Olympic action, news and drama covered.

Michael Pell, Sunrise Executive Producer

Sunrise is the only Aussie brekky show where viewers will be able to see live competition from Tokyo and all the latest Olympic highlights, news and exclusive athlete interviews from 5.30am AEST on weekdays and 6.00am AEST on weekends.

Sunrise’s new dawn with Natalie Barr

By SEVEN

The Seven Network is thrilled to announce Natalie Barr as the new co-host of Australia’s #1 breakfast show, Sunrise.

Barr has been an integral part of the Sunrise family for the past 18 years and begins her new role alongside Kochie from Monday.

Sunrise has been my work family for 18 years and while I’ve absolutely loved my role as newsreader, I’ve now been given the chance to move half a metre along the desk closer to Kochie and give something new a try.

I like to think of it as, same same but different. I can’t wait!

Natalie Barr

Nat has been there every step of the way as we’ve evolved Sunrise over the past 18 years.

Our viewers know Nat is way more than just a newsreader. For years she has always stepped up as a co-host, filling in for Sam and I, and spent much of last year leading our coverage of the COVID pandemic.

We all love her wicked sense of humour and no-nonsense approach to life. Nat and I have always had a very close relationship – I’ve seen her sons grow into fine young men, walked The Kokoda Track with her husband, Drew, and her mum Julie is so gorgeous. Nat is a wonderful person, with a wonderful family, and I can’t wait to sit alongside her as we continue to evolve Sunrise.

David Koch, Sunrise co-host

We have an incredibly strong team at Sunrise and I’m delighted that Nat has agreed to step up into this new role.

Sunrise is a very important part of many Australians’ days. It’s been the #1 breakfast show for many years and I know that Nat, Kochie and the rest of the team will continue to take it from strength to strength.

#1 in ratings year and #1 as summer starts

Fresh from winning the 2020 ratings battle, Sunrise and The Morning Show’s dominance of breakfast and morning TV is rolling into summer.

Last week Sunrise was the #1 breakfast TV program with an average 448,000 viewers nationally and a big lead over its nearest rival. The Morning Show also claimed the #1 spot, with 215,000 viewers nationally.

Eleven share points greater than its nearest commercial rival. A staggering result for Sunrise in 2020, maintaining the record ratings of 2019, reflecting how Australia chose to wake up and get their news and information.

From 5.30am through to 9am and then The Morning Show through to 11.30am, our teams delivered the most watched daily six hours of live television across the country every morning of every week. In television nothing can be taken for granted, least of all a trusting and expanding audience.

Craig McPherson, Network Director of News and Public Affairs

This has been a year like no other. Bringing breaking news to viewers has been a logistical challenge, but it has also never been more crucial. We are grateful to Australia for trusting Sunrise in even larger numbers during these times. I thank Kochie, Sam, Nat, Beretts, Eddy, Sam Mac and the entire team behind the cameras for their hard work and their dedication. Most importantly, thank you for watching.

Michael Pell, Executive Producer, Sunrise

In a trying year, the true test of a program is the loyalty of its viewers. To remain #1 for 13 years is more than an achievement – it’s a privilege, and one Larry, Kylie and the team don’t take for granted. We can’t wait to be back in 2021.

Sarah Stinson, Executive Producer, The Morning Show,
