Mr Mark Scott: jewel thief

Dear Mr Scott, you’ve described Radio National as the jewel in the crown of the ABC. I don’t understand why you would allow the removal of some of the most distinctive gems, writes Bret Treasure.

    Very good points Bret. I would also like to add that I sometimes listen to pod casts when i miss hearing one of my favourite regular programs. So my pod download is counted & measured but not the original free to air radio program I rarely miss. So there is no way to know the true ‘ ratings numbers’ at the end of the radio frequencies.
    I bet the ABC changes are implemented way quicker than most of the other Rudd Reports that have been commissioned!!!

    Well said Bret.

    This is pretty much what I’ve been thinking. You hiot the nail on the head and show Mark Scott up for what he really is!

    This article says it all, and it is gratifying to know there has been such an outcry at the proposed cancellation of these programmes. The suspension of Stephen Crittenden, one of the best of the A.B.C.’s presenters, reveals a degree of mean-mindedness which was unexpected and very much resented by all who have enjoyed his programme. We can only hope the Management of the A.B.C. reconsiders these regrettable decisions.
