The ABC announced in December 2010 that the state-based current affairs program Stateline would be folded into a new 7.30 brand from March 2011. The change saw 7.30 extended to five nights a week, although Friday editions were to be presented locally and focus on state affairs. The Friday state-based editions of 7.30 were eventually axed in December 2014.
It was broadcast on ABC1 on Fridays at 7:30 pm (in place of The 7.30 Report), with eight separate state and territory specific editions. It was also broadcast on the new digital channel ABC2 after its launch in March 2005.
