Basketball Australia’s Chief Executive Officer Kristina Keneally today said: “Today’s reports about ABC TV scrapping coverage of the WNBL are without foundation.
“The fact is Basketball Australia and the ABC are still negotiating the coverage of the upcoming WNBL season. We anticipate that there are several more weeks of discussions to be had.
“The reality is the media landscape is changing. Digital broadcasting, internet and free to air are all part of that changing media landscape, and are feeding into these discussions.
“We are very optimistic given that the ABC has been such a strong supporter of women’s basketball for the past 30 years.”
