Sky News revives Andrew Bolt’s The Bolt Report, moving it to five nights a week

Andrew-Bolt2Pay-TV channel Sky News has revived conservative commentator Andrew Bolt’s political talk show The Bolt Report, announcing it will now be five nights a week.

The future of the TV Show was in the air earlier this year after Ten failed to bring back the News Corp-produced talk show.

“The Bolt Report is an exciting addition to our 2016 primetime schedule and we are delighted to welcome Andrew to the Sky News team,” said Angelos Frangopoulos, CEO of Australian News Channel which operates Sky News.  

“Andrew is one of Australia’s most influential political commentators whose analysis and views will undoubtedly add context and stimulate discussion during this important election year.”

The Bolt Report will return from May and will be broadcast from Sky’s Melbourne studios each weeknight at 7:00pm AEST on Sky News’ main channel (Channel 601).

Bolt will also continue to write his columns for News Corp tabloids the Herald Sun, The Daily Telegraph, The Courier Mail and The Advertiser.

“Sky News beats all the networks in its commitment to news and true debate, and I am proud to be joining it,” said Bolt in a statement.

“My brief: to unspin the usual spin and inform viewers without fear or favour on the issues that matter most.”
