The new program, Erin, will replace Sharri in the one-hour weekly Sunday timeslot while award-winning investigative journalist Sharri Markson takes maternity leave.

An accomplished broadcaster, journalist and columnist for The Daily Telegraph, Molan joined Sky News in January 2022 as Primetime Contributor, providing insights across programs including Credlin, Paul Murray Live and Piers Morgan Uncensored.

Molan said of her new gig: “I am so honoured to be launching Erin in primetime on Sky News. It is going to be a wild ride of engaging guests and topics to debate, discuss and analyse. It is a wonderful platform I will have at my disposal to get to the heart of the issues facing everyday Aussies and put the tough questions to our nation’s political and business leaders. I cannot wait to get started.”

Sky News Australia  chief executive officer, Paul Whittaker, said: “Erin Molan is a respected broadcaster and journalist who fiercely advocates on issues of national importance. We are delighted Erin joins our Sunday primetime schedule.”

Molan will continue as a columnist for The Daily Telegraph and co-host of the 2DayFM breakfast radio show. She has held a variety of journalism roles covering sports and news for more than 17 years’, working across television, radio and print.

Prior to joining Sky News, Molan was a presenter and sports journalist for the Nine Network where she co hosted the Sunday Footy Show, NRL Footy Show and Friday Night Footy.

In addition to her broadcasting achievements, Molan has worked tirelessly to advocate for new laws to protect the safety of Australians online. Her advocacy work resulted in the passing of new legislation, the ‘Online Safety Act’, in 2021.
