Newsreader Talitha Cummins sues Channel Seven over alleged maternity leave sacking
Jessica Adamson, a weekend presenter on 7 News Adelaide, was caught letting out an audible “f—!” as Sunday’s live prime-time bulletin, alongside co-presenter Mark Soderstrom, was cutting to a commercial break.
Seven News has been recognised with six awards at this year’s New York Festivals International TV & Film Awards.
The 7News Investigates team earned five awards for their special report In Cold Blood: The Chris Lane Story about one of Australia’s rising sports stars gunned down in cold blood by three bored youths while out on an afternoon jog.
Executive producer Mark Llewellyn, Seven News US bureau Chief Mike Amor, producer Luke Blair and cameraman Arron Hage accepted two Gold World Medals and a Silver World Medal for Special Report, Best Camerawork and Best Interview at the gala presentation in Las Vegas.
The program was also awarded two Finalist Certificates for Best News Reporter and Best News Documentary.
Executive producer Mark Llewellyn said:
“We couldn’t be more proud of this achievement, and of Mike Amor and the brilliant crew – cameraman Arron Hage, producers Emma Dallimore and Luke Blair and the editors. Their journalism, compassion and incisive yet sensitive storytelling is credit to them.
“We dedicate these awards to Chris Lane. To tell his story and that of his wonderful family and friends was a great honour and we thank all of those who came together to contribute to the memory of a wonderful young life.”
Seven News was also recognised with a Finalist Certificate for its live coverage of the Paris Terror Attacks.
The New York Festival’s World’s Best TV & Films awards honour programming across all lengths and forms from more than 50 countries.

“Ashlee has performed outstandingly in her time as US Correspondent covering all the major international events in recent years, and thoroughly deserves to take over this crucial position.
“While Paul brings to the bureau 23-years’ reporting experience, including reporting from three Olympic Games, major news events at all points of the globe and domestically. A true journalistic craftsman.”
