Sky News has announced the debut of a new Sunday night line-up that will see the launch of a national affairs program and the return of Paul Murray LIVE.
Leading political commentator and associate editor of The Australian, Chris Kenny, is back on Sky News as anchor of Kenny on Sunday, a new two-hour program premiering tonight at 7pm on Sky News Live.
Direct from the Sky News Centre, Kenny and his panel will wrap up the day’s news and sport, take a look at what’s happening in the media as well as what’s making us all laugh.
“I’m excited to be returning to Sky News. I’m planning to welcome again some of my favourite guests and also new talent, providing viewers with the very best in news and views,” Kenny said.
“While most of us relax with family and friends on Sundays, the Sabbath is crucial for newsmakers. The polls are published, the politicians head back to Canberra and it’s a day for major announcements, set piece interviews and setting the agenda for the week ahead.”
Furthermore, award-winning broadcaster Paul Murray will fire up for two hours each Sunday night with Paul Murray LIVE at 9pm followed by PML Overtime at 10pm, taking an alternative look at the day’s news, and featuring special guests and exclusive interviews to dissect and discuss the issues affecting all Australians.
“Sundays give us a first crack at the issues that will dominate the week and I can’t wait to end the weekend with a good old-fashioned fire-up,” Murray said.
“I love the idea of people starting the day with First Edition and ending it with Paul Murray LIVE. The new timeslot gives us a chance to talk about all the big news, rip into sport and take extra time to talk to some really interesting people.”
Australian News Channel CEO Angelos Frangopoulos said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Chris Kenny back to the Sky News line-up and to see Paul Murray bring his unstoppable program to Sunday evenings.
“Sunday nights on Sky News will be dynamic, informative and must-watch viewing.”
