Sunday Night is an Australian news and current affairs program produced and broadcast by the Seven Network. The program airs on Sunday nights at 6:30 pm, and is hosted by Seven News Sydney presenter Chris Bath.[1]

History[edit]

Sunday Night is a newsmagazine show, featuring a mix of feature stories, investigative reports, forums and interviews. Unlike other newsmagazine programs, the show initially featured a live studio audience, which has since been removed. The show premiered on Sunday 8 February 2009.

Initially, each episode of the show was immediately followed by a companion program, The All in Call, a live question and answer session broadcast on Seven HD and online. The separate program was later axed, and the discussion was integrated into the final segment of Sunday Night.[2] With the removal of the studio audience the All In Call no longer features in the program.

Sunday Night's 100th episode aired on 18 March 2012.

Mike Munro initially co-hosted the show with Chris Bath but stood down as co-host to concentrate on reporting in April 2011.

Mark Ferguson & Melissa Doyle are fill-in presenters

Sunday Night's 200th episode aired on 23 November 2014.

Scheduling[edit]

During the AFL season, Sunday Night may air at a different timeslot in the Adelaide and Perth markets, if any twilight games involve Adelaide, Port Adelaide, West Coast and/or Fremantle. In addition, Sunday Night goes on hiatus when Dancing With the Stars airs in its normal timeslot of Sunday 6:30pm.
