The next stop on the popular Sky News Paul Murray LIVE Our Town regional tour will be Ballarat, Victoria, broadcasting live tonight from 9pm AEST on Sky News on Foxtel and regional free-to-air channel Sky News on WIN.
The program will highlight the historic tourist hot spots that make Ballarat a must-see regional destination, supporting the tourism sector which is still working hard to recover from the hardships of COVID-19, border closures and restrictions to its vital manufacturing sector.
Together with principal partner Harvey Norman, Paul will speak to businesses and local heroes, including Mayor Daniel Moloney and The Weekly Times and Harvey Norman ‘Shine Award 2020’ recipient Kate Davis, to share proud stories from the famous mining town.
Joining Paul on the program will be Sony Music artist and iconic Australian singer-songwriter Pete Murray, who will speak about his return to the spotlight and the release of his new EP. Pete will also perform his new single ‘If We Never Dance Again’ and cult classic ‘Opportunity’ for viewers during the program.
Paul Murray, Sky News anchor said:
“It’s no secret that Victoria was hardest hit by COVID-19 and lockdowns, and Ballarat, a proud manufacturing town is no exception. The stories of triumph against an unprecedented global pandemic are worth sharing with every fellow Australian.”
