The Seven Network has announced that 7NEWS will now take viewers well into the night with an all-new live news program.
Anchored by Michael Usher (pictured above), The Latest will cover the very latest breaking news from both at home and around the world, as well as up-to-the-minute developments on the biggest news events of the day.
The Seven Network’s director of news and public affairs, Craig McPherson, said: “The time is right to have a nightly news program post-6pm. The Latest will be exactly what the title says.
“Big stories of the day develop throughout the night and many stories are breaking. We’ll be live to wherever we need to be. It will be a destination for Australians to get the very latest on the happenings at home and abroad, as well as digging deeper on key issues.”
The Latest will premiere at 10.30pm AEDT on Wednesday 19 December, straight after the first Big Bash League clash, live on Seven and 7PLUS.
