The Seven Network has swung the axe the Perth and Adelaide editions of Today Tonight.

The final editions of the current affairs show will screen this week: Adelaide on Thursday and Perth on Friday.

TVBlackbox reported that while the show still dominated the timeslot, ratings had been in decline.

Perth journalist Mark Gibson broke the news on Twitter.

Today Tonight was axed on the east coast 5 years ago.

It’s understood that some staff will be absorbed into the Perth and Adelaide newsrooms as the network looks to a 1-hour news format from Monday.
