The longest-serving television news anchor duo is Susannah Carr and Rick Ardon (both Australia), who have presented from 1985 to 2022, for 36 years 361 days, as verified in Perth, Western Australia, Australia.

Rick Ardon and Susannah Carr began presenting the live broadcast of the 6pm Seven News together in Australia on January 24 1985 and have continued to read together since.

Rick had initially joined in 1978 as a news journalist and he attributes a large part of his success to the fact he had a good grounding in news as an on-the-road reporter.

Susannah began her career in media in 1974 as an announcer after studying Law and Arts at the University of Western Australia.

After 36 years with Channel Seven Perth, Susannah and Rick are still as enthusiastic as ever about their jobs as the day they started and are pleased to be part of Perth's top rating news team.
