SKY NEWS today announced an exclusive three year agreement with presenter Paul Murray.
SKY NEWS Chief Executive Officer, Angelos Frangopoulos said: “Paul Murray is an extraordinary talent and I’m delighted he’s agreed to be a big part of Australia’s News Channel for the next three years and beyond.
“Paul Murray LIVE has become must watch television and we have exciting plans to further develop the program in 2011 as SKY NEWS marks its 15th year on air.”

Paul Murray said: “There’s plenty of room for opinion on TV. The key is to try and make it well informed and argue things you honestly believe in, even when they aren’t popular.
“SKY NEWS has backed me in for a long time with various shows and have given Paul Murray LIVE time to get it right. Now they’re throwing everything they have to make it even bigger next year and beyond. I couldn’t feel more supported by a great group of people.”
