Julie Flynn

Julie Flynn, a former broadcast journalist and News Director, has been the CEO of FreeTV, the commercial free-to-air television’s industry body, for 11 years. In the past two years FreeTV has made 37 submissions to the Government on industry and regulatory matters, including five in relation to the 2011/2012 Convergence Review.

We’re saying the regulatory scales
have been unbalanced against us and
we’re looking for some evening up. We’re
responsible for $1.23 billion investment in
Australian content. That’s more than the entire
ABC budget and four and a half times more
than the entire funding from State and Federal
governments to the film industry. So we are
the key players here and we have to be able
continue to do that and we’re not going to
be able to do that with our hands tied
even tighter behind our backs.
