The half hour special, to replace The Outdoor Room, will see PM Rudd talking to a forum of Aussies in a pre-recorded special filmed on Sunday afternoon.
Seven says there will be “no moderator, no filter,” just the PM one on one with audience members. Last week’s hurried Financial Crisis Special did well for Seven, at over 1.4m viewers. Nine even dropped Battlefronts from its forthcoming schedule as a result.
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd will front a Seven News special this Sunday night to answer the questions of every day Australians.
He spent more than $10 billion in one day to boost our economy and help families struggling to cope. Now the PM will respond to issues raised by Australians who have been directly affected.
Mr Rudd’s cash injection has provided bonuses for pensioners, carers, low- income earners and first-home buyers, in a move the Government hopes will help save our economy from the financial crisis gripping the globe.
Minding Your Money: An Audience With The Prime Minister will have Australians from all walks of life represented – first home buyers, pensioners, people on minimum wage, mums, dads, families, employees and employers.
But who’s eligible for the grants? How will the money be paid and what can you do to safeguard your financial future?
For the first time in Australian television history, the PM will take the public’s questions unfiltered. There will be no moderator – just Mr Rudd and you, the Australian people.
“This is crunch time for all of us,” says Channel Seven CEO David Leckie.
“I am delighted that the Prime Minister has chosen Seven in his initiative to inform and reassure the Australian public.”
