From 6am to 10am every weekday, Breakfast will carry news from the broadcaster’s television, radio and online journalists. As previously reported it will include footage of live radio interviews with politicians and breaking international news.
It is expected to compete with morning radio, Sunrise, Today and Sky News.
ABC managing director Mark Scott has taken a personal interest in developing Breakfast overseeing the ABC’s first purpose-built, 24-hour multi-media newsroom, in Ultimo.
“If Sky News can deliver a 24-hour news service with a fraction of the number of journalists working in ABC newsrooms, then it stands to follow that the ABC is capable of producing a 24/7 news service for our audiences: we just need to work smarter to deliver it,” Mr Scott said earlier this year.
Broadcast from Melbourne, Breakfast will have a dedicated Canberra political correspondent as well as access to all the other journalists for breaking news.
Trioli also appears on the arts program, Sunday Arts.
