There are still over five months left until the Eurovision Song Contest comes to life in Vienna, but Austria’s state broadcaster ORF is already launching its coverage. Eurovision mania will find a home on the airwaves as the broadcaster launches “Vienna Calling”, a news segment covering the latest Eurovision news, on 17 January at 19:00 CET!
Anticipation for the Eurovision Song Contest is already growing, so it’s the perfect time for a news show to review all the news around the event and highlights of Austria’s Eurovision history. “Vienna Calling” will be a 5-minute segment included in “Vienna Today”, a Saturday news show presented by Patrick Budgen.
ORF will stream many more Eurovision-related shows and newsflashes in the coming months! We’re pleased to see that Austria is taking its hosting duties so seriously.
In the first edition of the show, their team will accompany one of the hosts Arabella Kiesbauer on her first Eurovision photo shoot, Serge Falck will present a profile of his home country Belgium and Petra Frey, who represented Austria in 1994, will start a victory countdown of Austria.
