    Chris Uhlmann joins Sky News as political contributor

    Sky News has announced that Chris Uhlmann will be joining the network as a political contributor.

    Uhlmann will make regular appearances on the Credlin program alongside host Peta Credlin every Tuesday evening, starting from 16 April. Additionally, on Wednesdays at 11:00am AEST, he will join chief news anchor Kieran Gilbert during NewsDay to provide analysis on the latest political headlines.

    Uhlmann will also be involved in major Sky News documentary projects and special investigations.

    Speaking of his new role, 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 of Sky News Australia, welcomed Uhlmann to the team, saying “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.”

    Before joining Sky News, Uhlmann served as the political editor for the Nine Network from 2017 to 2022, following a two-decade career at the ABC, first as host of its Canberra breakfast program and later as political editor 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.
