New ABC Role for Stan Grant
Stan Grant will take up the new role of Indigenous and International Affairs Analyst with the ABC at the end of the year after announcing his appointment as Professor of Global Affairs at Griffith University.
Grant joins Griffith University in December, after his ABC NEWS channel program Matter of Fact finishes its run.
Said Grant: “This is a fascinating and in many respects troubling time in our world, and this is the right move at the right time for me in my career and life.
“It is great to be able to combine my academic work with an ongoing media role. I value my relationship with the ABC and, while I’m stepping away from daily presenting, I look forward to being able to continue to write and comment on international news across all ABC platforms, building on the base we have created this year with Matter of Fact.
“It’s an important conversation to keep going with the Australian public both through my work at Griffith and my appearances on the ABC.”
Gaven Morris, Director ABC NEWS, said: “Stan has made a terrific contribution to the ABC as a presenter, a writer and a key voice in our coverage of Indigenous and Asia-Pacific issues, and Matter of Fact has done a great job providing thought-provoking context and insight to world events.
“We are delighted to keep Stan as part of our team. He will have an important ongoing role with the ABC contributing across our broadcast and digital platforms.”
More information will be released on the ABC NEWS channel’s 2019 schedule in coming weeks.
