New ABC boss turns down pay rise amid budget squeeze. Skip to sections navigation Skip to "Mr Anderson also said that as the ABC goes about managing further budget cuts Following a series of budget cuts since 2014, the ABC is currently navigating a three-year funding freeze that came into

"Some of it relates to people's employment, some of it does not — efficiency comes in many forms."

The Federal Government last year announced it would freeze the ABC's annual funding at the same level for three years — a move that will cost the broadcaster $83.7 million.

The cut will be phased in over three years, starting with an almost $15 million cut in 2019-20, about $28 million in 2020-21 and just over $41 million in 2021-22.

Mr Anderson acknowledged it was a period of uncertainty for staff.

"For me to be able to say 'yes I believe there will be staff losses' — but not to be able to say how many, or where from — I certainly appreciate is quite uncertain," he said.

Mr Anderson said the organisation had found $17 million in savings to-date but more work needed to be done.

"I don't think we'll be able to close that gap without losing staff."

However, he told the committee consideration would be given to keeping jobs in regional and remote areas.

"One of our priorities for the future is certainly to remain as local as possible," he said.

"Our role is to reflect the culture and community of the country back to itself.

"You struggle to do that unless you are local."
