Michael Usher exits The Latest as production relocates to Perth

EXCLUSIVE:

Seven News presenter Michael Usher will exit late night programme The Latest as production relocates from Sydney.

A Seven spokesperson said, “In March, 7NEWS will shift production and presentation of late-night news program The Latest to its Perth headquarters to streamline efficiencies. For viewers, the format, production quality and integrity of the program will not change.”

Usher has presented the show since its launch in 2018, frequently screening around 10:30pm, with Angela Cox more recently on alternate weeknights.

TV Tonight understands a small number of roles will be impacted by the change in production.

Usher previously told TV Tonight, “The big point of difference with The Latest is that its content is all interviews and crosses. We don’t run reporter stories. I like to think our audience has been flat out all day and evening, and we can help them catch up on the day’s news, and give them an idea of what’s brewing in the morning, so they can go to bed up to speed.

“I also always try to end The Latest on a positive note. An image of thoughts that’s uplifting before the day ends.”

Michael Usher will conntinue with Seven News Spotlight.
