  • Potential competition for Foxtel;
  • The Rio Olympics: “If I’m doing really well, I probably won’t buy it. If I’m not doing so well, I probably will”;
  • What Channel Nine did to get “out of trouble” and why Channel Ten should make similar decisions;
  • His commitment to developing regional news networks;
  • The future of newspapers and magazines.
