Today host and one of Australia’s most highly regarded live reporters, Karl Stefanovic, will spearhead Nine’s coverage of Donald Trump’s swearing-in, live from Washington D.C. Nine’s U.S Bureau Chief, Robert Penfold, will join the broadcast, bringing 40 years’ journalistic expertise, the last 20 of those garnered while living in the U.S. Viewers will be treated to expert analysis from Harlan Hill, broadly considered to be one of America’s most incisive political minds. Nine’s U.S. correspondent, Laura Turner, will provide regular updates from the streets of Washington D.C. Our coverage will draw upon the enormous resources of ABC America. Weekend Today at 7.00am will then cover the parades and celebrations taking place across the U.S., as well as the global reactions to the inauguration of America’s 45th President.
