Beginning this Friday night, 3rd March ABC News brings you The Link, a new current affairs program that supplies what its name implies: A link connecting today’s current topics and major news stories with people’s lives.
The Link also asks viewers what news matters to them, and why. It finds out what people want to know, and what knowledge and insights they have to share with the rest of us.
Hosted by one of Australia’s most highly-regarded journalists, Stan Grant, The Link airs weekly at 7.30pm Fridays on ABC and ABC iview.
“Our goal is to turn the news from background noise into something that matters to us,” Stan says.
“The Link is engaging and people-centric. Its guiding principles are curiosity and conversation. It tackles serious issues and tells interesting stories in a relaxed format suited to the end of the working week.”
