'I am devastated': Sacked ABC boss Michelle Guthrie considers legal options

ABC drama series Pine Gap ‘sold off’ in dud digital deal with Netflix

Ms Guthrie, a 53-year-old former Google executive based in Singapore, had replaced Mark Scott in May 2016, who had been in charge for a decade.

In a statement Guthrie has said she is "devastated" by the decision "despite no claim of wrongdoing" on her part and is considering her legal options.

Michelle Guthrie has been dumped as the ABC's managing director, after the board decided it "was not in the best of the interests" of the broadcaster for her to finish her term.

The termination of Guthrie's appointment comes after reported tension between Guthrie and the ABC chair Justin Milne.

Milne said the decision had not been taken lightly but refused to detail what was wrong with Guthrie's leadership.

'This is driven by our commitment to deliver best possible outcomes for our loyal audience'. On her watch the ABC embarked on a transformation program that saw it invest in digital initiatives, often to increase output of "lifestyle" content, de-fund some "harder" traditional television and radio programs, and collaborated with commercial media organisations on major investigations.

"I personally think Michelle has done a good job and the board has been very happy with many, numerous things that she does". "We needed a different leadership style and that is the decision of the board".

"We appreciate that a change in leadership creates uncertainty, however, we are firmly of the view that this decision is in the best interests of the organisation."

ABC managing director Michelle Guthrie has been sacked.

"I wish everyone at the ABC every success in the future as they continue their mission to keep all Australians informed and entertained".

Michelle Guthrie, one of the highest profile women executives in global television, has been fired as managing director of public broadcaster, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

The secretary of the ABC section of the Community and Public Sector Union, Sinddy Ealy, said the board had done the right thing.
