Xarabank is a prime time talk show produced by Where's Everybody that airs every Friday on the Maltese national television station TVM. The show is presented by Peppi Azzopardi. Various topics are discussed, from politics to hobbies.

The name comes from the Maltese word for "bus", as on a Maltese bus one finds different people with different opinions who end up discussing and arguing on different topics.

Xarabank is Malta's most watched television programme[citation needed] and it is the only discussion programme in Malta that has a live audience who can participate by having his/her say live. Xarabank is broadcast every Friday evening on TVM, Malta's national TV station, between October and July each year and has been on air since 4 April 1997. Xarabank investigates, discusses different issues and sometimes entertains.

Xarabank new logo as from 2016

In 2016, Xarabank launched its new official website: www.xarabank.com.mt. While a complete re-brand of the whole programme was done. The new identity features Xarabank as much more news oriented. The orange was eliminated and black was introduced as the main colour for the brand. A hint of red and blue was also applied to the brand.
