Australia Media

Newspapers and Magazines

Australia has a wide range of media although a few big companies (Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation and Kerry Packer's Consolidated Press being the best-known) own an awful lot of what there is to read and watch.

Radio and TV

The national advertising-free (so far) TV and radio network is the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). In most places there are a couple of ABC radio stations and a host of commercial stations, both AM and FM, featuring the whole gamut of radio possibilities, from rock to talkback to 'beautiful music'. Triple J is the ABC's youth FM radio station which broadcasts nationally and is an excellent place to hear music (Australian and overseas) which is outside the pop main- stream and plug in to Australia's youth culture.
