This Day Tonight
The 7.30 Report
A national edition hosted by Chris Uhlmann (as regular presenter Leigh Sales is on maternity leave) airs from Monday to Thursday, produced at the ABN studios in Ultimo, Sydney. A local edition with a focus on state affairs airs on Friday. However, when a big state political event happens, the national program can be pre-empted by the local edition.
Sabra Lane is political editor.
Tracey Bowden and Annabel Crabb are fill-in presenters. Regular host Leigh Sales is on maternity leave, with Sarah Ferguson initially filling in for her until August 2014, with Chris Uhlmann taking the reins afterwards. Sarah Ferguson has received critical acclaim for her hard-hitting interview style from all facets of Australian media.
On Friday nights, state editions of 7.30 are broadcast on ABC on at 7:30 pm, with eight separate state and territory specific editions. Each local version of 7.30 is also broadcast nationally on ABC News 24 over the weekend.
