Seven News (stylised 7NEWS) is the television news service of the Seven Network and, as of 2016, the highest-rating in Australia
National bulletins are presented from Seven’s high definition studios in Martin Place, Sydney, while flagship 6 pm bulletins are produced in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth city based studios. The network also produces local news bulletins for regional Queensland and the Gold Coast.
The news service is retransmitted via a number of regional affiliates, including Prime7, GWN7, Southern Cross Seven and WIN Television. It draws upon the resources of ITN, NBC, MediaWorks New Zealand, CBC, CNN, APTN and Reuters for select international coverage. The network’s Director of News and Current Affairs is Craig McPherson.
Seven News, previously known as ATVN News and Seven National News, is one of Australia’s longest-running television news services, founded in 1958, along with Nine News on the rival Nine Network.
In 2003, former Nine Network news and current affairs chief Peter Meakin was appointed to Seven News, tasked with lifting ratings in the struggling east coast markets by including more local content in those bulletins.
Seven News has been the top rating news service nationally for all but three years since 2005, partly attributed to the success of television game show Deal or No Deal (and later The Chase Australia)which provided the flagship 6pm bulletin with a significant lead-in audience.
