The Wednesday edition of the 7pm ABC News NSW has been prevented from appearing on iView along with the other state based reports. The report was corrected the ABC Late News, which is also hosted by Mr Fernandez.
Elsewhere at the ABC, the government is believed to be looking to fill the public broadcaster’s chairmanship in the coming months before the board appoints a new managing director, following the shock departure’s for former chairman Justin Milne and ABC MD Michelle Guthrie last year.
Ms Guthrie has launched a Federal Court action against the ABC and believes she was unfairly dismissed halfway through her five-year contract. Part of the court action is seeking her reinstatement as MD. The Sydney Morning Herald reported ABC board sources as saying the move was unworkable.
