The ABC plays a leading role in journalistic independence and is fundamental in the history of broadcasting in Australia. Modelled on the BBC in the United Kingdom, which is funded by a television licencethe ABC was originally financed by consumer licence fees on broadcast receivers. Licence fees were abolished in and replaced principally by direct government grants, as well as revenue from commercial activities related to its core broadcasting mission. Founded in as the Australian Broadcasting Companythe ABC was a government-licensed consortium of private entertainment and content providers, authorised under supervision to broadcast on the airwaves using a two-tiered system.
Brisbane Broncos to play Sydney Roosters in NRLW grand final
The "A" system derived its funds primarily from the licence fees levied on the purchasers of the radio receivers, with an emphasis on building the radio wave infrastructure into regional and remote areas, whilst the "B" system relied on privateers and their capacity to establish viable enterprises using the new technology. Following the general downward economic trends of the era, as entrepreneurial ventures in National infrastructure struggled with viability, the "Company" was subsequently acquired to become a fully state-owned corporation on 1 July and renamed as Australian Broadcasting Commissionrealigning more closely to the British, BBC model.
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation Act  changed the name of the organisation to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, effective 1 July The ABC is sometimes informally referred to as "Aunty",    originally in imitation of the British Broadcasting Corporation's nickname.
The first public radio station in Australia opened in Sydney on 23 November under the call sign 2SB with other stations in MelbourneBrisbaneAdelaidePerth and Hobart following. Following a royal commission inquiry into radio licensing issues, the government established the National Broadcasting Service which subsequently took over a number of the larger funded stations. It also nationalised the Australian Broadcasting Company which had been created by entertainment interests to supply programs to various radio stations.
Over the next four years the stations were reformed into a cohesive broadcasting organisation through regular program relays, coordinated by a centralised bureaucracy. News broadcasts were initially restricted, due to pressure from Sir Keith Murdochwho controlled many Australian newspapers.
However, journalists such as Frank Dixon and John Hinde began to subvert the agreements in the late s.

Melbourne's day average has fallen to 9. The Brisbane Broncos will look to claim a historic three-peat when they face the Sydney Roosters in the NRLW grand final, despite one round of the round-robin competition left to play next week.
After the Roosters made it back-to-back victories to open the season with a defeat of the Warriors on Saturday, the Broncos also stayed undefeated with a dramatic win over St George Illawarra at the Western Sydney Stadium. The round-two results mean both teams — who will clash in a dead-rubber match at Sydney's Olympic stadium next week — will meet each other again in the grand final on October But the Broncos' win was soured by captain Ali Brigginshaw being put on report for attacking the legs of Dragons halfback Maddie Studdon while in mid-air in the second half.
The Dragons also lost star second rower Kezie Apps knee and reigning Dally M medallist Isabelle Kelly ankle to suspected serious injuries. Broncos centre Jayme Fressard also failed to finish the match due to an ankle issue, forcing the Broncos to play the final seven minutes of the match with 12 players. But winger Lauren Brown sealed their place in the grand final with a try from close range in the 57th minute. St George Illawarra will face the Warriors next week in a battle of the wooden spoon.
Earlier, the Roosters worked their way to a two-try lead over the Warriors at half-time on Saturday before continuing their dominance in the second term. Halfback Zahara Tamara was arguably best on ground, highlighted by her entry for try-of-the-season when she beat four defenders on her way to a metre individual effort in the second half. Warriors pair Kirra Dibb and Evania Pelite, who raced 70 metres around high-profile signing Charlotte Caslick for a solo try, added some respectability to the scoreline, but by then the damage was done.
There was plenty of anticipation around Caslick switching to fullback for the Roosters, but the Olympic gold medallist was outshone by her in-form teammates in the frontline. Lock Hannah Southwell was again a menace in defence, while second rower Kennedy Cherrington and hooker Quincy Dodd also were a handful when injected off the bench into the contest.
Caslick came from the field midway through the second period, minutes after she was hit awkwardly in a tackle by Warriors five-eighth Dib while bravely fielding a kick close to her line. But she allayed any health concerns by returning for the final three minutes of the match and finished with 92 metres, four tackle busts and two offloads in another strong showing.
