Surprise extra panelist on Insiders


For the first time in its 18-year history, this Sunday’s Insiders program on ABC Television will have four panelists instead of the normal three joining host Barrie Cassidy at 9am.

Originally booked to appear were Gerard Henderson, Annika Smethurst and Phillip Coorey (pictured above) but ABC management at the highest of levels saw the list and decided that in the interest of the national broadcaster’s reputation for fairness and balance, a fourth panelist was needed.

It will be the first appearance on the program by Genghis Khan (pictured below).
