Paul Murray LIVE Our Town, Our Show – Premieres Wednesday 20 February at 9:00pm, first stop Toowoomba
In 2019 Sky News’ highest rating program Paul Murray LIVE will broadcast from ten regional locations across Australia, examining the issues and challenges facing Australia’s heartland, in partnership with Harvey Norman and Sony Music.
First stop for the Paul Murray LIVE Our Town, Our Show tour will be Toowoomba on 20 February.
Murray said: “We all say Australia is a great joint, we want to show everyone why it is. Too many people in power take regional centres for granted.
“This project is about celebrating towns, but equally giving those towns a chance to talk directly to the people in power.”
Sky News chief executive Paul Whittaker said: “The Paul Murray LIVE Our Town Our Show tour will tap into the heart of the nation looking at the great things taking place in regional and rural Australia that we rarely hear about as well as discussing the issues facing Australians living outside of the big cities.”
Kenny on Media – Premieres Monday 28 January at 8:00pm
In 2019 Chris Kenny, Sky News anchor and associate editor of The Australian, expands his role at Sky News with the launch of two new programs.
Premiering next Monday, each week Kenny on Media will dissect the highs and lows of news reporting, call out fake news and put media behaviour under the spotlight.
Kenny is at the forefront of national political debate, with senior roles in newspapers, radio and television along with past roles in politics and public relations.
Kenny said: “Never before has the role of the media been a hotter topic in national debate, claims of fake news and hidden agendas abound.
“In this new program I will sort fact from fake, discuss trends, expose deceptions and get behind-the-scenes with leading media influencers.”
The Kenny Report – Premieres Monday 11 February at 1:00pm Chris Kenny will join the channel’s weekday line-up for a new one-hour program The Kenny Report each Monday – Thursday at 1:00pm, as Sky News expands its coverage for Election 2019.
The Kenny Report will examine the issues dominating the day’s agenda, provide the first take on leading opinion and give viewers a jump-start on a fast-moving national news cycle.
Kenny said: “It is going to be another tumultuous year in national affairs and I am looking forward to getting right into the middle of the debate in the middle of the day.
“With so much unfolding during the morning through newspapers, breakfast television and radio, I’ll be providing strong opinions, robust debate and considered analysis of the day’s events.”
Kenny on Sunday returns from Sunday 27 January in its popular 7:00pm timeslot.
The Front Page – Premieres Monday 28 January, then nightly at 11:00pm Respected former newspaper editor Peter Gleeson will anchor The Front Page.
Gleeso will take an insider’s look at the next day’s headlines, speak to newsmakers and be on the lookout for fake news.
Outsiders – James Morrow and Rita Panahi join Rowan Dean from Sunday 27 January at 9:00am
A revamped Outsiders returns to Sundays at 9:00am with Rowan Dean to be joined by James Morrow, The Daily Telegraph’s Opinion Editor, and Rita Panahi Sky News anchor and Herald Sun columnist each week as they look away from the mainstream news agenda.
After record ratings in 2018, Sky News has cemented its place as one of the leading channels on subscription television, holding number one positions across Foxtel in key evening timeslots.
