Communications Minister Mitch Fifield has requested information on the scope and time frame of the ABC’s investigation into issues raised by former MD Michelle Guthrie before she was sacked. However, the ABC’s acting chair Kirstin Ferguson has told Fifield that it would be inappropriate for herself or any other board member to comment, as they could potentially be in breach of their fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the public broadcaster. The ABC’s acting MD David Anderson will appear before the Senate estimates committee on 23 October.
