Stan Grant’s new ABC current affairs series The Link will premiere on Friday night.
Described as “a link connecting today’s current topics and major news stories with people’s lives” airs weekly at 7.30pm Fridays, replacing 7:30.
“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.”
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.
7.30pm Friday, February 24 on ABC.
