Seven News - Bulletins - Local Bulletins - Brisbane


Seven News Brisbane is directed by Rob Raschke and presented by Sharyn Ghidella and Bill McDonald from Sunday to Thursday and Kay McGrath and Rod Young on Friday & Saturday from Seven's Brisbane studios, located at Mount Coot-tha. Sport is presented by Shane Webcke from Sunday to Thursday and Pat Welsh on Friday & Saturday. Weather is presented by John Schluter from Sunday to Thursday and is presented by Liz Cantor on Friday & Saturday.

The bulletin is also simulcast in Brisbane on local radio station 96.5 Family FM, to regional Queensland viewers in the Sunshine Coast, Wide Bay-Burnett, Toowoomba, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns television markets via the Seven Queensland network and across central & remote areas of eastern Australia, on Southern Cross Central.

Previously, Tracey Challenor presented the weekend news for many years until her resignation in February 2007. Cummins was first appointed to the weekday weather in 2005 after more than a year of the Brisbane bulletin not having a weather presenter; former kids show presenter Tony Johnston had this role in 2003. Cummins was replaced by former Nine weatherman John Schluter in early 2007 and she was moved to weekends. Ghidella joined Seven News in 2007 and replaced Challenor.

In October 2002, Rod Young moved from ABC News in Brisbane to co-anchor with Kay McGrath. She had presented Seven News Brisbane solo for the previous nine months following the retirement of Frank Warrick. Their dual presenter format has proved to be successful. Following a couple of lean years coming second to Nine News Brisbane, Seven News Brisbane regained its ratings lead by 2007, helped by the recruitment of ex-Nine weatherman John Schluter and director of news Rob Raschke. In 2008, Seven News Brisbane was officially the #1 bulletin in Brisbane, winning all 40 ratings weeks.

In January 2013, Sharyn Ghidella and Bill McDonald were appointed Sunday to Thursday presenters with Kay McGrath and Rod Young moving to present on Friday & Saturday. It was also announced that Ghidella will present a local edition of Today Tonight.

News updates for Brisbane are presented by Sharyn Ghidella or Bill McDonald throughout the afternoon and the early evening. Patrick Condren, Bianca Stone and Jillian Whiting are fill-in news presenters, with Ben Davis or Rohan Welsh presenting sport, and Liz Cantor or Angie Asimus presenting the weather.
