ABC Television concludes W-League broadcasting after 2014 season

Today’s budget cuts means the end of the W-League on the ABC, a partnership that has lasted seven seasons.

On the back of the Abbott Government’s cutback of $254 million from the public broadcaster over the next five years, ABC Managing Director Mark Scott today announced more than 400 ABC staff could lose their jobs.

In a statement on the ABC website Scott said that those cuts will include state based local sports coverage.

“With the ABC facing declining audience interest in local sport competitions and some codes chasing commercial opportunities, ABC Television is revising its sports strategy to ensure the most cost-efficient use of resources and optimal audience impact.”
