Steve Austin

Steve Austin

Steve has presented programs for ABC Radio & Television for thirty years. He has focused primarily on public affairs with a political bent. An interest in Art and what it says about the artist and the audience he believes that Brisbane writer Melissa Lukashenko got it right when she wrote “the audience gives us their trust & we give them new eyes”. Steve aims to approach public affairs from a different angle and draw out the unexpected from guests. He has interviewed every Australian Prime Minister from John Howard to the Present day. He declines to interview celebrities as they tend to be predictable whilst the interesting stories come from unexpected people.
