LATELINE host Tony Jones has scored a live and interactive public affairs program to host each week.
Jones will host a weekly program on ABC1 called Q&A, which will be filmed live in front of a studio audience.
And viewers will be able to participate via mobile phones and email, the ABC said.
Next Wednesday, Jones will also host the ABC's live coverage of the Stolen Generations apology in parliament.
ABC director of TV Kim Dalton last night said the ABC planned to give viewers more choice in 2008.
"We are helping to reshape the way people use and interact with TV by giving them more programs, more ways to view them and more flexibility around when and how to watch them," he said.
