"The 7.30 Report" is an Australian nightly television current affairs program, shown on ABC1 at nowrap|7.30 pm, Mondays-Thursdays. Its sister program, "Stateline" is shown at the same time on Friday nights. Since 1995 the program has been hosted by prominent journalist Kerry O'Brien, previously the host of "Lateline". Ali Moore is the program's main relief presenter.

The programme is usually composed of several articles and live interviews, focussing on issues of national or global significance. Politicians from both sides frequently appear in interviews with O'Brien to discuss current events and to articulate their own strategies and thoughts.Until the end of 1994 the program had separate editions for each state, presented by Alan Carpenter, Mary Delahunty, Quentin Dempster, Trisha Goddard, Sarah Henderson, Genevieve Hussey, Leigh McClusky, Kelly Nestor and Andrew Olle. Kerry O'Brien took over as presenter of the national program in 1995, with Maxine McKew as the main relief presenter until 2006.

Current reporters include political editor Michael Brissenden, together with: Heather Ewart, Hamish Fitzsimmons, Deborah Cornwall, Greg Hoy, Mark Willacy, Nicole Chettle, Murray McLaughlin, Mary Gearin, Mike Sexton, Paul Lockyer, Matt Peacock, Mark Willacy, Lisa Whitehead, Natasha Johnson, David Mark, Peter McCutcheon, Jocelyn Nettlefold, Genevieve Hussey, Mark Bannerman and Jonathan Harley.

Since 1997, satirists John Clarke and Bryan Dawe have presented a (usually) weekly mock interview covering a topical issue. Dawe is the interviewer, while Clarke plays a prominent public figure, but unusually for satire, he deliberately makes no attempt to imitate the appearance, voice, or mannerisms of the person he portrays. These interviews are a continuation of the pair's work for "A Current Affair", beginning in 1989, for which they have won a number of awards.
