Debbie Spillane was the first woman sports broadcaster hired by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and shared her views on the current scope of media, racing and the modern day sports fan. "In terms of breaking news from sport, I find that Twitter is light years ahead of wire services and, of course, newspapers, even newspapers in their online form. For a while many journalists were skeptical, asking questions like 'well, how do you really know who these people are that are tweeting information?' But really, it's just an extension of old world contacts and story tip-offs. Unless you are really gullible you should be able to figure out fairly quickly if the tweeter is usually well-informed." "Television doesn't face a threat to its existence but perhaps a dilution of the influence of its old flagship channels given the way alternatives to old-style broadcast TV are multiplying," posited Ms. Spillane.

ABC NewsRadio sports broadcaster Debbie Spillane said Gayle's comments were a setback for female reporters working in sport.

"I think if you looked at the expression on Mel McLaughlin's face and the reactions from just about every female sports journalist on Twitter last night you could see that it wasn't fun from the perspective of the woman who was in the position and the women who have been in that kind of position and imagine how it felt," said Spillane, who was the first female sports broadcaster hired by the ABC.
