A Boardroom Lunch with Kate Torney, ABC Director of News

Kate Torney was appointed Director of News in 2009, putting her at the head of more than 1500 staff across eight capital city newsrooms, 11 international bureaux and more than 60 regional and suburban locations throughout Australia.

As Director of News Kate has led a period of transformational change that has reshaped the ABC's newsgathering operations to cater for changing audience needs.  Key to this has been the rapid expansion of the ABC’s online and mobile news services, including the launch of cross-platform teams and an interactive storytelling unit. Other achievements include establishing the National Reporting Team and launching ABC News 24, now the nation’s most-watched dedicated TV news channel.
