On Monday, January 30th, the rest of the updated current affairs schedule returned, settling in for a month before the return of Sales.

After receiving the 2022 Gold Walkley Award, Australia’s highest media honour, the Four Corners crew returns at 8:30 pm for another year of courageous and forensic investigative journalism. At 9:15 pm, Media Watch will be back to evaluate the media and hold it accountable for its impact on Australian society.

Returning to its regular time slot of Mondays at 9:35 p.m., Q+A is Australia’s preeminent public debate platform, with host Stan Grant and local and international thought leaders providing nuanced answers to viewers’ queries.

Talking about taking on Australian Story Leigh Sales said: Australian Story is one of the most beloved programs in the country and I am so excited and humbled to be invited to front it.

I can’t wait to be involved in the production process of such a talented team.

“I’d also like to acknowledge the honour of being only the second anchor in the program’s 26-year history, following my esteemed colleague, the late Caroline Jones.”

Sarah Ferguson will co-host 7.30 with Chief Political Correspondent Laura Tingle starting on Monday, January 30.

The Drum, hosted by Dan Bourchier, John Barron, Ellen Fanning, and Julia Baird airing each weeknight at 6 o’clock, features in-depth and thought-provoking debates.
