Is Washington Ready for Doug?

Sheer hard work and professionalism does pay on ABC Radio!

Brisbane staff, and no doubt many interstate, were thrilled last week to learn that Doug had been promoted to correspondent, Washington.

Doug is likely to take up his appointment in the early new year after seeing out the Queensland election campaign.

It’s a three year appointment and he will join another former Brisbane journo, John Cameron, in the US capital.

State rep Andrew Buchanan had this to say: “This is a great credit to Doug. We also see it as flattering to the Branch. Everyone appreciates the tremendous work Doug has performed for ABC Radio in his current affairs position, particularly over the last 12 months.” #
