TELEVISION viewers in Queensland will no longer be able to watch Today Tonight.
The Seven Network has announced it is cancelling the east coast version of the program, effective immediately, so it can air an hour long news bulletin.
Network Boss Tim Worner sent an email to staff, here’s some of what he had to say, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

“This move is about building and investing in Seven’s leading news coverage. In recent times we have increased our level of news across the day with great success. We plan to do even more in the future.
“We see this as an exciting opportunity to serve our news audience in a better way.
“I want to take this chance to pay tribute to Today Tonight and the TT team on the east coast. Over many years, and as recently as last week, the program has broken big stories, kept consumers informed and held people to account.”
Worner will personally brief staff later this morning to answer their questions.
The decision to make the news bulletin one hour long, is in line with a similar decision made by the Nine Network.
