Politics in the Pub: The Future of the ABC

Politics in the Pub: The Future of the ABC
with Quentin Dempster, Margaret Reynolds & Ranald Macdonald
6.30pm Wednesday 22 March
Eastlake Football Club, 3 Oxley Street Kingston

** Please note different venue -- we'll be at Eastlake Football Club in Kingston due to long-term renovations at UniPub**

The Australia Institute’s research shows that the ABC is Australia's most trusted broadcaster. At a time when so-called 'fake news' is at an all time high, has there ever been a greater need for a strong, independent and trusted national broadcaster? It is not hyperbole to say that the ABC is under more technological, financial and political pressure than ever before. With a new direction under Michelle Guthrie's leadership, what does this mean for the Future of the ABC? 

Our expert panel of Quentin Dempster (journalist & author), Margaret Reynolds (National President of ABC Friends & former Senator), and Ranald Macdonald (former managing director of The Age & ABC Friends) will discuss what’s happened, what the effects will be and their take on the future of the ABC.
