On Andrew Bolt
I first met Andrew Bolt in 2016.
Andrew had agreed to speak at a leadership conference I was hosting, but then had to pull out at the last minute. It was a problem, since we had sold hundreds of registrations based on the fact that he would be there.
As a compromise, I flew to Melbourne with a film crew and we recorded a one-hour interview to show at our event. Andrew was incredibly gracious and generous in that interview as we discussed everything from the church to Islamic extremism.
The interview was a hit with conference attendees.
A few weeks later, to my surprise, I got a call from a producer on The Bolt Report who asked if they could have the footage of that interview. They wanted to dedicate an entire episode of his program to screening my interview with him.
So I am the first and only person ever to interview Andrew Bolt on the Bolt Report!
Fast forward six years and I now find myself working at Sky News Australia on a show with Andrew’s son James as the producer.
On top of that, I’m Andrew’s guest on The Bolt Report every Thursday, along with Daisy Cousins. It’s one of the highlights of my week and I think people are enjoying it. If you missed this week’s episode, grab a coffee and take five minutes to watch. I think you’ll like it … especially the end!
Oh, and if you don’t have Foxtel but want to watch The Bolt Report (and of course The Late Debate Mondays - Thursdays) you can go to Flashnews.com.au, download the app and watch for just $2 a week.

Yes, thank you James for opening up Flash to me and many others. I have followed Andrew Bolt for years (and watched him on Channel 10). So good to be able to see him nightly on Sky News. I agree Pamela, last night was so good (I even missed the tennis to watch the Late Debate!). Keep up the dialogue.
Great story about your SKY News journey ‘til now - well done James 👏
Absolutely loving being able to watch SKY News live (thank you Flash) 6pm - very late. Love your show The Late Debate with the feisty Liz, smart Caleb, who can kindly often bring another dimension to a topic, and our quirky, satirical James🤣 a feast. And now with Andrew Bolt & Daisy Cousens, fab - what fun last night.
