29th Quills: Best Breaking News or Live Coverage, sponsored by The Lottery Corporation

ABC News Victoria has won the Best Breaking News or Live Coverage Quill for “Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews Resigns”.

This award is sponsored by The Lottery Corporation.


Judges' citation

When Dan Andrews surprised Victoria by quitting as Premier after nine years, Richard Willingham broke the news and the ABC quickly harnessed its considerable resources to cover this big story. The ABC News team delivered a comprehensive rolling package of reports. Their content had detail, authority and context and reached a large audience across the ABC's multi platforms.
