Credlin is an Australian television news and commentary program broadcast weeknights on Sky News Australia. The program is hosted by Sky News commentator Peta Credlin, who previously served as former Prime Minister Tony Abbott's Chief of staff.

The program debuted on 20 November 2017[1] during the final week of the 2017 Queensland state election with initial guests including LNP leader Tim Nicholls and One Nation leader Pauline Hanson.[2] The debut episode was the seventeenth most watched show on subscription television for the day, viewed by 39,000 viewers.[3]

The program is the first format Credlin has hosted solo, having previously been a co-host of Credlin Keneally with Kristina Keneally and Jones & Co with Alan Jones.[4]

Credlin, which replaced The Latest with Laura Jayes in the timeslot, will focus on political analysis led by Credlin herself.[5]

In the first half of 2018, Credlin has improved Sky News' timeslot performance by 166% and was the highest ranking show across all Foxtel channels in its timeslot.[6][7]
