Election Campaign Video: The Bush

Thumbnail image

Pete Lewis is a bit of a legend in rural Australia.  He joined the ABC in 1980, and was for years the ABC’s Brisbane-based rural reporter.  He was EP of Landline for five years, and New Zealand correspondent for two.  

Brisbane-based Pete left the ABC a few years back, and is now the director of media consultancy ‘Way with Words’, and President of the Australian Council of Agricultural Journalists   Appropriately, his Twitter handle is @endofthebitumen. 

Pete’s election campaign message for ABC Alumni echoes the words of former MD Mark Scott: “The further you get from Ultimo, the closer you get to the beating heart of the ABC.” 

“I reckon there’s a bit of truth to that observation”, comments Pete. So do we.
