Chris Uhlmann Joins Sky News Australia – Sky News today announced veteran political editor Chris Uhlmann will join the network as Political Contributor.

Uhlmann will be a regular contributor on the Credlin program, joining host Peta Credlin each Tuesday evening to provide his insights on the day’s top political news. His first appearance on the program will be Tuesday 16 April at 6:00pm AEST.

Then, each Wednesday from 11:00am AEST, Uhlmann will join Chief News Anchor Kieran Gilbert during NewsDay for sharp analysis on the latest political headlines.

Uhlmann will also work across major Sky News documentary projects and special investigations.

Chris Uhlmann said:

“I am delighted to be joining Sky News as a contributor. I have watched the network since its inception and have always admired its commitment to journalism though straight-shooting broadcasters like Kieran Gilbert and Laura Jayes. In 2010 I helped establish ABC News 24 and had a brutal reality check on just how hard it is trying to keep pace with Sky.

“Many have noted the network also encourages robust, opinionated debate. So robust it allowed commentators like Peta Credlin and Chris Kenny to passionately prosecute opposite sides of the Voice debate. Sky stands tall in the Australian media landscape. You may not agree with it, but you can’t ignore it.”

Paul Whittaker, Chief Executive Officer, Sky News Australia said:

“Chris Uhlmann is a highly regarded political journalist who, through his decades of experience, has covered some of the biggest stories that have shaped Australia’s political history. We’re delighted Chris joins our unrivalled political team to provide our viewers with astute analysis and thought-provoking commentary, backed by sharp political instincts and an intricate understanding of the machinations of government.”

An award-winning journalist with a career spanning more than three decades across print, radio, television and online, Uhlmann was the Political Editor for the Nine Network from 2017 – 2022, a role previously held by respected Australian political journalist Laurie Oakes.

Uhlmann spent two decades at the ABC, first as host of its Canberra breakfast program and later appointed Political Editor in 2015 reporting for flagship programs ABC News and 7.30.  

Uhlmann has also co-written a series of political novels set in Canberra which were later adapted into the television series Secret City for Foxtel. He is also the co-author of the children’s book The Useless Tune.

Chris Uhlmann’s first appearance is 16 April.
