Multiple reports out this morning say Channel Seven public affairs program Today Tonight’s future is on rocky ground, with executive producer John Choueifate on sick leave.

The AFR’s Rear Window column writes that it doubts he’ll be back from his “indefinite” break, and The Australian reports this morning there is speculation Seven’s news bulletin could be extended, perhaps to 45 minutes with a shorter features-style program tacked onto the end.
