Ali Moore has been named as the new presenter for the ABC's Lateline, sharing hosting duties on the late-night news programme with Tony Jones.
Moore, who currently serves as the presenter of ABC News 24's Afternoon Live broadcast, will fill the presenting position vacated by Leigh Sales. The ABC announced earlier this month that Sales would become the Sydney-based presenter of the re-titled 7.30.
Moore first joined the ABC in 1987, becoming the broadcaster's China correspondent in 1992. After spending ten years at the Nine Network, she returned to the ABC and became the first presenter of Lateline Business, before moving to her current role at ABC News 24.
Moore is the second prominent name from the 24-hour news service to return to ABC1. Chris Uhlmann, ABC News 24's political editor, will switch back to the primary channel to serve as 7.30's Canberra presenter and political editor.
The ABC has also announced that Tom Iggulden will become Lateline's political correspondent. Iggulden is the China correspondent for the Australia Network, the Asia-Pacific broadcaster operated by the ABC.
