ABC icon, Kerry O’Brien – now a local as most people know – will be the featured speaker at a seminar organised by the Northern Rivers Branch of Friends of the ABC to be held on Saturday 20 June at 2 pm in the A&I Hall in Bangalow.
The focus will be on journalism and we can expect Kerry to draw on his great wealth of experience in the field and perhaps also to comment on his recent move to host the ABC’s flagship program, 4 Corners.
President of our local branch, Neville Jennings, has been conducting a competition for aspiring young journalists and their three-minute DVD presentations will be screened after Kerry’s talk so that he can provide feedback.
It’s important, I think, to continue to show our support for the ABC and in particular for its independence (no advertising) which has come under threat in the past. This should be a worthwhile event; for more details people can contact Neville at [email protected]
