On Aunty

Jonathan Holmes
What next for your ABC?
Australia's public broadcaster, 'Aunty', is about to turn 90, yet your ABC has seldom been in this much trouble: budget cuts, ferocious political pressure, sagging staff morale, leadership chaos and hostile commercial rivals. Meanwhile audiences are deserting broadcast TV and radio. What is the ABC's place in the era of media disruption? Can it reach a younger audience on new platforms while still satisfying its loyal fans?

Jonathan’s great gift is intellectual clarity, and this essay is a fine example. A must read for anyone who cares about the ABC.”
