Twenty Years on and as Strong as Ever

Susannah Carr and Rick Ardon will tonight celebrate their 20th anniversary presenting Seven News together.

This is a remarkable achievement which is unequalled in Australian television and quite possibly anywhere else in the world. Even more remarkable is the fact that twenty years on they are still as popular as ever. Last night nearly half of Perth's television audience were tuned to Seven News (47.6% or 256,000 viewers).

Seven Network management, past and present colleagues and industry guests will gather in Perth tonight to celebrate this special milestone at a gala cocktail function in Mosman Bay.

Acknowledging their anniversary, Managing Director of Seven Perth, Chris Wharton said, “Twenty years is an extraordinary amount of time in this industry. The Seven Network and all of Susannah and Rick's colleagues congratulate them on their outstanding careers and for their fantastic contribution to television over two decades. To be WA's most watched News presenters for such a long time speaks volumes for their total professionalism. I'm sure we'll be celebrating many more milestones with them in the future”.
