80 broadcaster jobs cut from ABC

ABOUT 80 jobs at the ABC will go following the Federal Government's decision to axe the Australia Network international broadcasting service.

The vast majority of the jobs will be lost in Melbourne, where the ABC's Asia Pacific News Centre is based. Staff working across TV and radio will be affected, including journalists, producers, technical and communications staff.
