Federal Communications Minister Paul Fletcher has moved to change the ABC’s charter, so to boost its coverage of rural and regional areas. He has also reintroduced legislation that would require two members of the ABC’s board to have links to regional areas. Judith Whelan, the ABC’s recently appointed director of regional and local operations, believes it is already doing a lot of work in regional areas. Whelan also rejects suggestions that the ABC has a left-wing bias.
