The memo continues “This convergence strategy will see Radio Australia, Australia Network and News 24 working more closely. Lynley, who will bring a clear strategic focus and a track-record of bringing about significant organisational change to her new position, will also seek to identify other opportunities to take existing ABC content into international markets.”

The move comes after the tender for the Australia Network was cancelled and the contract awarded to the ABC.
