AAP Close Leaves a Gap in Australia’s Media
The Australian Associated Press (AAP) has announced it will close after 85 years, putting 500 jobs at risk. AAP is owned by a collective of Australian media companies and provides reporters, photographers and subeditors, whose work can be seen on practically every news website, heard on every radio and seen on every TV bulletin.
The AAP Cheif Executive Bruce Davidson says the business is no longer viable in the face of increasing free online content.
Breakfast host Alex James spoke to Julie Tullberg, Journalism Lecturer at Monash University, about how this will affect the Australian public and the news we all consume.
