The Tuggeranong Community Council (TCC) has launched an online petition calling on WIN TV management to reverse its decision to downgrade its Canberra and region news service.
The TCC is encouraging all residents in the Canberra Region WIN TV viewing area to sign the petition (link below) and to circulate it to family and friends via email and online social media. The petition calls on WIN TV management to reinstate its Canberra based produced and presented local news service and to assure Canberra and regional viewers their local news service will be retained.
The TCC and many other Canberra community organisations and leaders believe the actions of WIN TV management will have a negative impact on local news gathering, local news coverage and the overall quality of local news and information in the Canberra WIN TV viewing area.
The TCC believes WIN TV’s actions will also discourage the training and development of future young journalists who enter the field after years of study for a communications degree. The TCC is concerned this is just the first step and eventually WIN TV will reduce the number of journalists employed in its Canberra newsroom with all Canberra region news written and presented from Wollongong or elsewhere.
