Religious leaders to meet ABC MD about content cuts -

View in ParlViewView other Segments

Religious leaders are preparing for a fiery meeting with the ABC Managing Director, Michelle Guthrie, tomorrow, warning that cuts to the national broadcaster's religious programming contravene its charter.

One of Australia's most senior Anglicans, the Archbishop of Melbourne Philip Freier says the ABC has 'considerably reduced' its religious programming over the last two years.

Yet he says more people attend church each Sunday than go to all the football codes combined.
