STATEMENT - ABC Managing Director


24 September 2018

 

The ABC Board today announced the Managing Director would be leaving the organisation and recruitment for a successor would begin.


The Government thanks Michelle Guthrie and acknowledges her service as Managing Director of the ABC for the past two and a half years in what is a challenging and rapidly changing media environment.


ABC Managing Directors are appointed by the Board. The ABC Board has legislated independence in relation to management appointments and the Government respects the duty and role of the Board in these matters. 




Authorised by Senator the Hon Mitch Fifield, Liberal Party of Australia, Parliament House, Canberra.
