This is Simon. Simon grew up on the Hawksbury River, he’s a keen cyclist and a pub trivia aficionado. He’s also a former ABC journalist.
Simon had always had a passion for the news and believes it was a great privilege to work for the ABC. Whilst working for the ABC Simon covered everything from breaking news to election cycles and he and his colleagues loved the fact that they were working to inform the public, and not represent media moguls.
Every day many Australians, like Simon, who work at the ABC, keep us informed and entertained. These public broadcasters are our neighbours, our friends and our family. Their success is measured not in profit, but in better informed communities and stronger people. We all benefit from our public broadcasters being in public hands – run for us, by people like us, telling local stories.
