The Special Broadcasting Service after 30 years : public service media and new ways of thinking about media and citizenship
Flew, Terry (2009) The Special Broadcasting Service after 30 years : public service media and new ways of thinking about media and citizenship. Media International Australia Incorporating Culture and Policy, 133.
This article considers the distinctive ways in which the Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) has evolved over its history since 1980, and how it has managed competing claims to being a multicultural yet broad-appeal broadcaster, and a comprehensive yet low-cost media service. It draws attention to the challenges presented by a global rethinking of the nature of citizenship and its relationship to media, for which SBS is well placed as a leader, and the challenges of online media for traditional public service media models, where SBS has arguably been a laggard, particularly when compared with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). It notes recent work that has been undertaken by the author with others into user-created content strategies at SBS and how its online news and current affairs services have been evolving in recent years.
