More talk today about Seven’s greater plans for its news brand with talk of Melissa Doyle to be joined by Matt White at 4.30pm on weekdays according to news.com.au.
As first revealed by TV Tonight, Doyle is also expected to front a new primetime current affairs show on 7TWO.
“A substantial amount of development is being done in the news and public affairs department,” a Seven spokesman said.
“Many of our most valued and well respected journalists and reporters will be involved. Details will be announced in forthcoming weeks.”
Chris Reason, Angela Cox and Mike Amor are also expected to be involved.
Last week Today Tonight was the target of much criticism after a bungled presentation but the show is tipped to remain until the end of the year.
Melissa Doyle recently announced her departure from Sunrise for a new national news initiative.
