Patricia Karvelas to host Q&A return
PK resumes hosting duties on ABC forum next week in Melbourne, after a high school edition screened on iview yesterday.
Patricia Karvelas will return to host Q&A when it resumes on ABC next Monday night.
Guests in the Melbourne studio include UK Minister of State for Armed Forces James Heappey, Filmmaker Rachel Perkins and Independent Member for Curtin Kate Chaney.
It isn’t yet clear if Karvelas will stay in the hosting role for the remainder of the year.
Stan Grant stepped down from the show in late May seeking a break from media.
News Director Justin Stevens told a Senate Estimates hearing “He’s taken leave for around eight weeks.”
ABC sources indicated there was no update on his return to the show as yet.
Meanwhile yesterday BTN held a Q+A high school forum in Melbourne hosted by Amelia Moseley, with Minister for Youth Anne Aly discussing topics with a teen audience: HECS debts, nuclear energy, Commonwealth Games, voting, the Voice to Parliament, social media, school phone bans, and AI misuse.
It screened on iview and YouTube.
