The ABC has confirmed that current affairs program "Lateline" will not return in 2018. The show, which was first broadcast in 1990, will be replaced by a late-evening news bulletin. Current host Emma Alberici will become the public broadcaster’s chief economics correspondent. Weekly program "The Link" will also not be renewed, and host Stan Grant will take up the role of the ABC’s chief Asia correspondent. The ABC will redirect funding for these shows to its investigative unit and its team of specialist reporters.
