It’s set to be one of the closest US elections in decades – with a result possibly not likely to be known for many many hours after polls close in all states – unlike 4 years ago where the result was known in the afternoon our time, minutes after west coast polls closed. Plenty of coverage on both free to air and pay TV. Continue reading »

In an embarrassing tit-for-tat approach, Charlotte Dawson is tonight helping Seven News out a 20-year-old for being a social media troll.
After the drama of her hospitalisation over being bullied on twitter, Dawson is really starting to come across as unhinged.
”Who are they, or you for that matter, to tell me what to do? Are you a mental health expert? No. So they can all f***k off,” an emotionally raw Dawson told PS this morning when asked why she would appear on Seven News at such a sensitive time in her treatment.
There are two fairly impertinent questions here.
Firstly, why is Charlotte Dawson continuing down this path when all it appears to be doing is creating escalation? And secondly, how does confronting someone at their workplace constitute news? I could understand if the lowbrow Today Tonight was behind the sting but running that during the news? Is this an all time low for Seven?
On Monday night, October 16, ABC News outrated Seven’s and Nine’s 6pm News. The slump in Seven News is mostly due to very poor figures in Melbourne, where ABC news was the most watched news of the night. Continue reading »

In a Seven News and Today Tonight exclusive, Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum has spoken for the first time about the horrific fall at his home in December which nearly cost him his life as well as his “grueling” road to recovery.
The interview was conducted by Seven’s Jennifer Keyte at his home in Richmond, Melbourne, after consultation with his medical team.
Molly revealed that while he remembers slipping and falling as he hung Christmas lights off the roof in his back courtyard – hitting his head on a sphinx sculpture – his next memory was a month later in the Epworth Rehabilitation clinic.
“It was raining and then I slipped and went ‘kabang’ and hit that sphinx there. Actually it sort of at least cushioned some of the fall I think… I remember banging my head and went ‘oh my god’ and then I apparently just passed out,” he said. Continue reading »
Melbourne Only (and VIC regionals that air Melbourne’s 6pm News)
SEVEN News will present a special broadcast live from the Royal Children’s Hospital tonight, as preparations continue for the 2012 Good Friday Appeal.
Presenter Peter Mitchell will be at the hospital as we speak with the organisers who make it happen, with a full recap on news of the day.
Sports presenter Sandy Roberts and weather presenter David Brown will join Peter, as we prepare to celebrate this special day on the state’s calendar.
Seven News Director Steve Carey said the appeal was a big event.
“Seven News is proud to share with viewers the great work done by the team at RCH, and why the Good Friday Appeal is so important to all Victorians.”
Tomorrow the biggest names in television and entertainment will gather for what promises to be the most spectacular Good Friday Appeal yet, with all money raised going towards medical equipment and research at the hospital.
This iconic and unrivalled fundraising event – which started in 1931 and has been broadcast by Seven for 55 consecutive years – has so far contributed more than $226 million to the Royal Children’s Hospital. Victorians donated a record breaking $15,156,000 and organisers hope to create a new record when the broadcast kicks off tomorrow at 9am.
