Media industry veteran Ita Buttrose is tipped to succeed Justin Milne as the ABC’s chair. Communications Minister Mitch Fifield is expected to seek cabinet approval for her appointment in coming days, although a government spokesman has indicated that a decision has not yet been made. Buttrose has extensive experience in print and broadcast media, and she has held several directorships in the sector. She did not feature on an independent panel’s shortlist of candidates for the ABC role.
