Statement today from John Farnham.
The ABC is here to “explain the Voice Referendum” to the people

Underwhelming ABC MD who’s run TV and radio ratings into the ground gets another 5 years.

The shit rises at the ABC. 

The Herald reports:

The ABC has reappointed managing director David Anderson for another five-year term, with the national broadcaster extending his contract until mid-2028 in a bid for stability as it pushes ahead with a new five-year plan.

The decision to reappoint Anderson, which has not been publicly announced, was finalised by the ABC board earlier this year, with the Communications Minister Michelle Rowland writing to chair Ita Buttrose in May to confirm the proposal.


Can’t control the staff. 

Can’t pick a winner on TV. 

Has destroyed ABC Radio so that it’s a joke in almost every market. 

Easily bullied by the ABC protected species saff whose stuff ups have cost a fortune in defamation payouts. 
Sure …give him another 5 years.
