A warm welcome to Margaret Cassidy and Nicola Joseph who recently joined the CBF Board as Directors for a three year term. Both bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the CBF as leaders in broadcast media, strategy and governance.
Margaret has worked in the media for over 30 years including extensive experience in senior management roles at the ABC focussing on technology, digital disruption, emerging media and the delivery of multiplatform content to national and international audiences.
More recently, she has been lecturing in media innovation at the University of Sydney and is a PhD candidate at the University of Tasmania focusing on photojournalism and the visual representation of migrant groups in the Australian media.
Nicola has been involved in community broadcasting since the late 1970s when she first went to air as a media student in Bathurst. Since that time she has worked at 2SER, 4ZZZ, 2SER and Radio Skid Row, and at key community broadcasting sector organisations including as CEO of the Community Media Training Organisation (CMTO). Nicola has also worked at SBS and the ABC as a journalist, presenter, executive producer and station manager.
She is currently undertaking research into media and diversity in Australia as a PhD candidate at the University of New South Wales.
We look forward to working with Margaret and Nicola, and know they will make an invaluable contribution guiding the work and future direction of the CBF.
