ABC News 24 will launch mid-year and will deliver continuous and commercial-free coverage of major breaking stories in Australia and around the world. It will take advantage of the ABC’s existing news operation, including more than 800 journalists, in 60 locations in Australia and 12 international bureaux that are already creating high-quality news content from an Australian perspective.
The ABC News 24 on-air team of presenters includes Chris Uhlmann (Political Editor), Ali Moore, Scott Bevan, Virginia Trioli, Joe O’Brien, Juanita Phillips, Jeremy Fernandez, Jane Hutcheon and Paul Kennedy.
Director of ABC News, Kate Torney, said: “ABC News 24 will give Australians immediate and broader access to reporting and analysis as news breaks locally and internationally, providing a quality 24-hour news service that is comprehensive, independent and up-to-the-minute. Australians will be more informed, in more ways, more often, every day of the year.”
