Hack (radio program)
The show began at the start of 2004 after a shake up of the station's programming. The previous current affairs program, The Morning Show from 9 a.m. to midday, was axed and the half-hour Hack was its replacement, from 5.30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
It was hosted by Steve Cannane up until mid-2006. At this point, Cannane left Triple J radio to become the current affairs reporter for their jtv program. One of Cannane's stories on Hack, "Petrol Sniffing, Pill Testing and the Cost of War", earned him a Walkley Award. He won the Walkley Award for Broadcast Interviewing in 2006.
In April 2012, journalist Sophie McNeill was announced as host of the program with Tom Tilley becoming the face of Hack on ABC News 24, he will continue to be a reporter for the show. Sophie went on maternity leave in 2013, and Tom Tilley returned to the host role permanently when she decided not to return.
The current Executive Producer is Michael Atkin.
