Australian broadcaster Alan Jones announces return

Australian broadcaster Alan Jones has announced his return on his new online show, Alan Jones Direct to the People.

The show will be livestreamed from Monday to Thursday on Facebook, YouTube, and Jones’ own new website.

“This has never been done in Australia. It’s the media tomorrow,” he said. Said Friday press.

In November, Jones left Sky News Australia after the network announced that it would not renew the contract.

He then signed a deal with Australian Digital Holdings after livestreaming directly to listeners on Facebook and seeing a high number of engagements.

“I was encouraged by both the level of reach and level of interest in what I’ve already posted on my Facebook page,” he said.

Jones said the purpose of his show was to give voice to those who felt lacking in voice.

“Numbers like Facebook and YouTube so far show that there is resonance and reach. These are people who have to speak and are often silent,” he said.

Jones believed that the biggest problem Australia is currently facing is “not completely addressed” by politics, but said it was a concept of self-blame.

“Currently, in so many media, there are certain opinions that are quarantined,” he said. “So this will be an opportunity for people to be able to say what they think and have an opinion through their content and feedback from me.”

He said people deserve to have a product they can identify and are keen to hear and learn.

“And that number is huge, it’s there, and it’s worth the service,” he said.

The announcement came after rumors that Jones would run for the Senate.

“Sit in the Senate and say nothing? I don’t think it’s me,” he said. “I think there is something wrong with the parliamentary system. I don’t want to be part of it.”

“I think those people have good intentions, but there are many MPs who are dissatisfied with talking to me and saying,” No one has heard what I did. ” [to say],'” He added.

The first show will premiere on December 13th at 8 pm to discuss Australian freedom issues.
