Channel 7 has axed long-running current affairs show Sunday Night.

The announcement comes as Channel 7 gets a new CEO in James Waburton.

Staff were told this morning that the Melissa Doyle fronted show will no longer run following average ratings.

Seven’s Head of News and Current Affairs Craig McPherson confirmed that the program would not continue in 2020.

“After 11 years at the forefront of our Public Affairs offering it is with much sadness I announce the closing down of the day to day operations of Sunday Night: True Stories.

It has been a very tough decision in a very challenging TV landscape,” McPherson said.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting the show may be replaced by Today Tonight.
