ABC Radio boss resigns

Staff Writer

After 5 years as the Director of Radio at the ABC, Kate Dundas has announced her resignation.

ABC Managing Director Mark Scott said: "Kate has been an inspired leader of ABC Radio and a much valued member of the ABC Executive over the last five years. She always said she felt five years was about the right period of time to serve as the head of Radio – and I am disappointed I have been unable to change her mind about that.

"Her track record in terms of audience impact and innovation speaks for itself. Day-in, day-out the ABC’s radio services create a deep, personal connection between millions of Australians and the public broadcaster."

Dundas says: "While a difficult decision to reach, I feel it is absolutely the right time for me to hand over the stewardship of what is obviously my favourite part of the ABC. I have no other firm plans in place at this stage, other than to take a short break and then consider what other interesting challenges there are for me to do.

"It’s been a truly great experience, a wonderful ride in fact and a privilege to lead such talented and dedicated teams that work so hard each day to engage audiences in more ways than ever before. We’ve achieved much together and put strategies in place to ensure audiences continue to enjoy what ABC Radio is able to offer into the future."

Dundas will finish up in July. No replacement has been announced at this stage.
