Patricia Karvelas joins ABC RN
Patricia Karvelas is joining ABC RN as the new presenter on drive for the network.
Patricia has been senior journalist for 15 years, starting out with ABC and SBS as both a producer and presenter. Since 2002 she has been with The Australian covering federal politics and most recently working as the Victorian Bureau Chief and Editor and Senior National Affairs Journalist.
Patricia has been a regular fill-in presenter on 774 ABC Melbourne and a number of ABC television and radio programs including RN’s Sunday Extra and ABC TV’s The Drum.
“RN is the network of ideas – and there are few people better placed in the Australian Media than Patricia to take up the role of RN Drive presenter,” said Deborah Leavitt, Manager, ABC RN.
“She brings to the role a strong track record in breaking stories, a highly-tuned analytical mind and an interest in Indigenous affairs, as well as a natural curiosity about what matters most in the lives of Australians."
Patricia will commence on air on Monday 26 January 2015 and replaces Waleed Aly, who is leaving to head up the Project on Channel Ten in the New Year.
