A New York-based nonprofit organization, ANAPN, has been created by Indigenous Australians who are calling for a new, independent news source that is “fair, unbiased and representative of Australia’s Aboriginal people.”
The network, which will begin broadcasting in early 2018, will be staffed by Indigenous people from across Australia.
The network will be run by a panel of experts and journalists from around the world.
The news will be presented in a manner that reflects Australia’s “values and beliefs, and the history and cultural heritage of Australia,” ANAPNs founding director, Rebecca D’Auria, told Al Jazeera.
She explained that the network will have a focus on indigenous Australian stories, but also be able to cover regional issues.
“We’re very much focused on Australian Indigenous stories,” she said.
“So we are trying to change that.” “
One of the reasons for the new network’s creation was to bring together Indigenous Australians from around Australia. “

ANAPn will be broadcast on ABC TV, the ABC radio network, and online, but there are also plans for a regional version, and a number of regional languages, to be added.
The Australian Aboriginal News Media Association (AAANA) said that there was a lack of Aboriginal media in Australia.
An AAAMMA spokesperson said the group wanted to build on the existing network, “which is a good starting point.”
The new network will also be a new home for the ABC’s Aboriginal Service, which was launched in 2015.
It will provide a place where Aboriginal people can share their stories, their experiences and their concerns, and to work towards an inclusive future.
“This will be the first time that Aboriginal Australians can use their voice in Australia and be able speak directly to the ABC,” AAANA president Andrew Wilson said.
He added that the new service would also be an opportunity to expand the ABCs coverage of Aboriginal issues.
The ANAPNS board of directors, which includes Aboriginal journalists and Indigenous Australians alike, will decide on the future of the network.
The ABC has already said that it will continue to broadcast Aboriginal-centric programming, but it will be open to other news sources as long as they adhere to ABC guidelines.
It is not the first organisation to launch a news network on the Australian continent.
ABCs Indigenous affairs program, ABC News at Noon, was launched as a standalone program in January.
The program is a “socially conscious, diverse and culturally responsive” program, according to the program’s website.
