The ABC will nationalise its 7pm Sunday bulletin, convey again Stateline, and disband its arts workforce as a part of its largest restructure in six years.
ABC Information boss Justin Stevens has tried to reassure audiences exterior the east coast capitals that the nationwide broadcaster has not betrayed them in transferring to nationalise its 7pm Sunday bulletin, as a part of the largest organisational shakeup on the ABC in six years.
In an interview with ABC Radio Melbourne late Thursday, Stevens repudiated claims the consolidated Sunday night bulletins constituted a “betrayal” of native audiences in cities equivalent to Adelaide and Perth, whose localised 7pm information bulletins had been nixed in a restructure announcement made to ABC workers earlier that afternoon.
“Betrayal is a heavy phrase,” Stevens mentioned. “They may [feel that way] in the event that they thought that was the one factor we’ve introduced at this time. So let’s give them the courtesy of telling them all the things we’ve introduced.”
