Chairman of Australia’s public broadcaster resigns over independence scandal

The chairman of Australia’s public broadcaster resigned after allegations he appeared to bow to government pressure when he called for the removal of a senior journalist. Justin Milne, chairman of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation said he would resign after widespread anger from staff, labour unions and lawmakers. Milne’s departure comes just days after the ABC sacked former managing director Michelle Guthrie. The ABC said Guthrie was dismissed amid concerns about her leadership style. The ABC is funded by the government but is an independent body.
