    7:30 o'clock news?

    Dear Friends,

    We can say 7 o'clock news but can we say:

    1. 7:30 o'clock news (?)
    2. 7:30 news (I only guess it's correct)
    3. the news at 7:30 (I know it's correct)

    I'm going to watch the 7 o'clock news.

    1. 7:30 o'clock news (?) No. We only use "o'clock" with whole numbers.
    2. the 7:30 news (I only guess it's correct) Yes.
    3. the news at 7:30 (I know it's correct)
