ABC Annual Report 2015
ALL ABOUT AUDIENCES

“The ABC’s vision is to be the independent home of Australian conversations, culture, and stories. In pursuing that vision, the ABC places audiences at the centre of its activities and strategies for the future.”

Discussion paper

A public broadcasting sector designed for the 21st century would look different to the one we have today. There are opportunities and risks relating to all reform options for Australia’s public broadcasters.

No Politics at Aunty’s Table:
Depoliticising the Governance of the ABC

Tackling the ABC for its performance is part of the Australian political game. Partisan attempts to change the ABC’s governance arrangements, however, amount to moving the goalposts.

The day started with an overcast sky but as the cloud cleared it became uncomfortably warm. The Secretary and Media Co-ordinator left the upper mountains in cool mist and drizzle.
Our stall was very successful but once again, we were flabbergasted by the number of ABC watchers/listeners who were unaware of the funding cuts and what these cuts have and will continue to mean for the ABC, its supporters and its employees.
Our SAVE YOUR ABC balloons were a big hit with the little people. Unfortunately we ran out of the attachments used to hold the balloons on the sticks or there would have been many more little SAVE YOUR ABC’s on the move around Glenbrook Park and hopefully beyond.

Our EOY Celebration Dinner, held at the Grandview, was a great night. Along with some fun there was also much discussion around the future of our ABC.

With the business end of the AGM concluded, our guest speaker, Senior Audience Producer for Q&A, Christine El-Khoury, shared an enlightening behind- the-scenes talk/Q&A with members and guests. The interest was such that it was a tad difficult to call a halt at the required time. An extended Q&A session continued over lunch and was enjoyed by all.
