2013 Australian Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism – November 28
The 2013 Australian Walkley Awards will premiere on ABC TV on Thursday November 28 at 9.00pm (local time).
Hosted by Emma Alberici at the Royal International Convention Centre in Brisbane, the ABC is delighted to be this year’s official broadcast partner.
ABC Director of Television Richard Finlayson said: “This is the first time that we will be using ABC3 as an ‘after-hours special broadcast event channel’. This is a great way for ABC TV to support the awards night and to bring the Walkleys to a new and wider audience.”
To watch the special pop-up broadcast event, viewers will need to tune into Freeview channel 23 or channel 723 on Foxtel.
For the first time, the Walkley Awards will also be available online on the night and streamed at www.abc.net.au/walkleys .
The stream will be accessible at 9.00pm (AEDT). The geo-block will be lifted so that Walkley finalists who live overseas will also be able to view the broadcast.
On Saturday November 30, there will be a one-hour highlights replay on ABC1 at 1.00pm as well as 11.00pm on Sunday December 1.
