ABC Australia Chairman Steps Down


ABC Australia Chairman Justin Milne is stepping down from his role effective immediately.

Milne decided that this outcome would enable the corporation to move forward, free from the distraction of the last few days surrounding the departure of the managing director. Milne told the board he was motivated by the best interests of the ABC.

“The job of the ABC board is to independently govern the corporation, protect its best interests, ensure that it is well funded, well managed and that our content is of the highest standards,” said Milne. “That is precisely what the board has done and will continue to do. I do not propose to provide a running commentary on day-to-day issues which arise in pursuit of our duties.”
