Stan Grant departs Q+A; Patricia Karvelas to anchor

Stan Grant has stepped away from his presenter role at Q+A, but will remain at the ABC, moving onto “new projects.”

Patricia Karvelas will continue to host for the rest of the year.

ABC Director, News Justin Stevens said the ABC “respected and supported” Grant’s decision.

“Stan Grant is one of the country’s finest journalists, storytellers and broadcasters and we will be delighted to have his contribution across a number of different ABC programs,” Stevens said.

“We want to do all we can to support Stan and ensure he continues to play a major role in Australian media. He has the ability to lead our media toward a kinder and more constructive conversation.

“In Wiradjuri ‘dyiraamalang’ means a teacher and leader. Stan Grant, a proud Wiradjuri man, is both of those things and I’m looking forward to seeing what he does into the future.

“Patricia Karvelas has been doing an outstanding job as fill-in host and we’re delighted she has agreed to continue in that role.”
