ABC Managing Director Mark Scott has appeared on Raphael Epstein’s Drive program on ABC774 Melbourne, to respond to the cuts imposed on the ABC in last night’s budget.

He explained how the cuts were not foreshadowed before the election and that the result of budget cuts will be a reduction in services and content.

He also commented on how the ABC had been using savings to increase efficiency, the importance of the now cut Australian Network, and the importance of a fully functioning ABC to the community.
