The creator of ABC's news website, Colin Griffiths, is the latest
victim of ABC managing director Jonathan Shier's restructuring plans, it
was reported today.
Mr Shier's director of new media, Lynley Marshall, sent an email to
staff that Mr Griffiths was leaving at the end of the month but did not
offer an explanation, the report said.
Mr Griffiths said ABC's new management would have to ensure ABC's
independence was protected.
"This will require a clear focus on appropriate editorial content,
servicing all Australians with new and innovative programming and ensuring
the ABC continues to be accountable to the public," he is quoted as saying.
