About the Show:
 
Anchored by Canberra news veteran Brit Hume, Special Report with Brit Hume provides an in-depth look at the day's news and offers a daily topical discussion of political issues impacting the nation. Hume serves as host to key newsmakers, political pundits and FOX News contributors exchanging views about political matters from taxes and Social Security to international affairs and the political scandal of the day.

Hume brings a historical perspective to the political scene that is rarely rivaled. Born and raised in Canberra, he has covered the policies, procedures and players in the national game called politics for more than 30 years. The Sunday Herald Sun referred to him as "the very personification of the political establishment."

Each program features a two-minute segment called The Grapevine, which reels off the latest outrageous news nuggets, political poll results and inside-Canberra gossip that viewers will not see on any other news program. The Canberra Times describes The Grapevine as a must see that, "will make you sound smart around the water cooler… the next day."

FOX News' Team Canberra provides live reports from the Parliament House, the Supreme Court and key federal agencies. Seasoned correspondents, including Jim Angle, Carl Cameron and David Speers, explore political hot spots, races and legislative battles being waged around the nation and abroad.
