Q+A on ABC – ABC NEWS is pleased to announce Patricia Karvelas will return as Q+A anchor in 2024.
Karvelas will lead the conversation as citizens put their questions to local and international politicians and thought leaders.
She will also continue to present RN Breakfast three or five days a week, depending on the Q+A schedule.
“Q+A is the town hall. It’s the only program bringing together a range of guests to debate the big issues where ordinary people – not journalists or insiders – can come along and ask questions of powerful people.
“I thrive on big and difficult conversations and I’m excited and privileged to take on the role of host of this iconic ABC program in 2024.
“A show like Q+A should constantly be evolving to meet the needs of Australians and that’s what I’m committed to doing.
“RN Breakfast is the agenda-setting long-form audio interview program that brings me so much joy. I’m delighted to combine my love of radio and TV at the ABC.”
Justin Stevens, ABC Director, News:
“Having a journalist of Patricia Karvelas’s calibre leading these two key programs is terrific for the ABC and for audiences.
”Patricia’s an exceptional communicator with a rare ability to cut through complex issues and make them clear.
“She’s an independent thinker who brings ethical and intellectual rigour to her journalism.”
Q+A on ABC TV and ABC iview – returns on Monday 19 February 2024, simulcast LIVE around the country on ABC TV, ABC iview and ABC NEWS on radio and into Asia and the Pacific on ABC Australia.
