ABC Friends ask members to grade Senators support for the ABC

With an eye on the next federal Election, the ABC Friends are asking their members to begin lobbying Senators to show support for the ABC as a national public broadcaster with independent journalism.

Using an interactive map, Senators have been assessed on their chances of winning an ABC Friends Medal given their level of support for the broadcaster.

Some are graded as medal chances, with the rest designated as “In Training”, as according to the ABC Friends, these Senators have not yet demonstrated that they are up to the expected standard as elected custodians of the ABC.
