Bruce Dovis, CEO of Australia Network, in Taiwan: "We have more people on the ground in the Asia Pacific than anyone else. We also look at what other broadcasters are showing. ... Although we get our funding from the government, we are independent and not subject to the same constraints that a government-run media group would be. In fact, sometimes the government can get quite upset with some of our broadcasts." The China Post (Taipei), 10 November 2007. Virginia Trioli resigns as morning presenter on 702 ABC radio in Sydney. "She spoke to executives from the ABC's Australia Network, which broadcasts to Asia, a few months ago, about presenting the morning news program." The Age (Melbourne), 9 November 2007.
