ABC radio advertising on commercial television

666 ABC Canberra are advertising their breakfast program during prime time on commercial television….These people can get as much free advertising as they want on ABC TV, but they spend taxpayers money on this…I can’t see how it benefits them, it’s not as if ratings are important to them, after all they don’t have advertisers who crave ratings, and they aren’t funded on a per rating point basis, and The Friends Of The ABC certainly wouldn’t let the federal government close down an ABC radio station because of ratings.

Of course, not only are the ads appearing during expensive hours, but they also look fairly expensive…All this money going to the TV stations and not the hospitals…To quote Mr John Stanley “Oh Dear”.

I think I’ll give them a piece of my mind tomorrow morning, and time permitting, bring it up on the better breakfast program (2CC Mike Jefferys).
