As in the print and press sectors of the Australian political public sphere, broadcast political media content covers a broad spectrum of genres, styles and formats, ranging from traditionally ‘serious’ journalistic analysis, debate and discussion formats through a range of magazine television formats to more popular infotainment and human interest-type programming. In terms of audience share, Australia’s three free-to-air commercial television networks (Seven, Nine and Ten) tend to exceed the audiences claimed by the two public broadcasters (ABC and SBS) in competing slots.
