Sunday Night (currently subtitled 'True Stories') is an Australian news and current affairs program produced and broadcast by the Seven Network. The program airs on Sunday nights at 8:30 pm, and is hosted by Melissa Doyle.[1]


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 was since 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.

Mike Munro initially co-hosted the show with Chris Bath but stood down as co-host to concentrate on reporting in April 2011. Alex Cullen and Mark Ferguson have been fill-in presenters.

Melissa Doyle succeeded Chris Bath as the show's host from August 2015.[3]

In September 2019, the Seven Network announced that the show will be axed due to poor ratings and a changing television landscape.[4]
