Ms Eves will be making a vital contribution as we engage with Free TV members, the Government and industry stakeholders on the important regulatory changes that are needed to ensure that commercial television continues to have a strong and vibrant future.
Ms Eves said, “I have long admired the role that Free TV plays in public policy development for the Australian media sector, and I am thrilled to be able to contribute to this. I am particularly interested in ensuring that all Australians, no matter where they live or what their circumstances, have equal access to free local television services.”
