Tony Jones

Renowned current affairs journalist

  • Tony Jones is one of the ABC's most experienced radio and television current affairs journalists. He has reported for Four Corners and Foreign Correspondent and is the current host of Q&A and Lateline on Wednesday and Thursday nights. The recipient of a Walkley Award for "Horses for Courses" on the Waterhouse racing dynasty, a Penguin Award for "My City of Sydney" on the city's development boom, and a Gold Medal at the New York Film and Television Festival for "Frozen Asset" on the exploitation of Antarctica, he is one of the country's most acclaimed journalists.

    Crikey awarded him Outstanding Media Practitioner of the Year in 2005 for 'ferocious intelligence, polite calmness, [being a] dogged interrogator, deep political instincts, juggling the running agenda, [and having] a great sense of context', describing 'Lateline without [him] a perfectly adequate late night news review; with [him] a world-class piece of television.'
