This Day Tonight
The 7.30 Report
7.30 is an Australian nightly television current affairs programme ABC1 and ABC News 24 at 7.30pm, Monday to Friday. A national edition screens from Monday to Thursday, produced at the ABN studios in Ultimo, Sydney and hosted by Leigh Sales. A local edition with a focus on state affairs screens on Friday. However, when a big state political event happens, the national program can be pre-empted by the local edition.
Tracey Bowden and Annabel Crabb are fill-in presenters.
On Friday nights, state editions of 7.30 are broadcast on ABC1 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.
