End of an era! Channel Seven rebrands iconic regional networks ahead of Commonwealth Games coverage

Channel Seven will no longer allow regional stations Prime7 and GWN7 to broadcast news under their own brands.

From Monday July 25, the broadcaster’s bulletins will feature the 7News logo.

The change comes just in time for the Seven network’s coverage of the Commonwealth Games which starts July 28, reports TV Blackbox.

According to the publication, the change comes after Seven acquired its affiliates earlier this year. 

Moving forward, however, the stations will continue to produce their own news casts.

GWN7 broadcasts a regular half-hour bulletin dedicated to the regional news in Western Australia, outside Perth.

Meanwhile, Prime7, which has a head office in Canberra, airs a 6pm bulletin with anchor Madelaine Collignon. 

It has five local editions for viewers in the Central West, North West, North Coast,  Wagga Wagga and the Border regions.
