Review recommends that indigenous broadcasting be moved back to DBCDE

06 April 2011

The long awaited report of the Indigenous Broadcasting Review was released on April 6, 2011.

The Report strongly recommended that Federal Government responsibility for Indigenous broadcasting programs be located within the same Department as other broadcasting and media sectors, finding this to be a long held desire amongst Indigenous media practitioners.

In response, the Government has decided to transfer responsibility for the Indigenous broadcasting and media sector from the Arts portfolio to the Department of Broadband, Communications, and the Digital Economy. The transfer will take effect from 1 July 2011.
