ACM has announced details of its editorial plan for the federal election.

ACM has today announced details of its comprehensive editorial plan for the upcoming federal election, including a partnership with Garry Linnell under its new national bulletin brand The Echidna.

ACM’s editorial director Rod Quinn said “our 2022 election coverage will combine the expertise of ACM’s federal political team with the deep local knowledge of our 600 journalists in towns and cities around the country.”

“Our chief political correspondent Karen Barlow leads an outstanding team of 10 reporters and analysts in Canberra. We will be following the key players around the country and exposing, analysing and explaining the policies, the posturing and the pork-barrelling. We will also be aiming for those exclusive stories that will make the ACM network and our mastheads such as The Canberra Times, the Newcastle Herald and The Examiner in Launceston a must-read during the campaign.”
