World Vision launches news program hosted by Mel Doyle

World Vision has launched a new news program, providing viewers with an insight into how communities are dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The series – Windows To The World – will be hosted by World Vision Goodwill Ambassador Mel Doyle and feature ‘Australia stories of hope and humanity’.

Doyle will speak to a number of national and international voices in the program, including former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark, former Australian foreign affairs minister Julie Bishop and AFL star and World Vision Goodwill Ambassador Nic Naitanui.

The first episode will premier via Facebook and be published to Instagram and Youtube.

Doyle said she hopes the program will help bring communities together.

“In the weeks ahead we’ll be shining a light on different corners of the globe, bringing you exclusive stories on how our planet, and our communities, are being changed by COVID-19. Together, we can shape a better world.”

World Vision Australia chief marketing officer, Maryanne Tsiatsias, said the show would try to cover stories that can be missed by mainstream media.

Tsiatsias says the program will tell the stories mainstream media doesn’t

“We know right now Australians are consuming more news media than ever before, so through Windows To The World we will we’ll be using our own online and social channels, to bring viewers exclusive access to stories that aren’t being reported elsewhere and reveal the impacts of COVID-19 on the world’s most vulnerable,” Tsiatsias said.

“World Vision’s global scale and 70-years of experience in responding to disease outbreaks, including polio and Ebola means we have insights from community leaders, families and aid workers from across the globe and extraordinary stories to share.

“The interviews and content will be deeply engaging and inspiring for the many Australians who are looking for new meanings and directions in this pandemic.”
