News anchor and former ABC TV host Julie Johnston is excited about the first drone she’s used to fly to work, which she described as a “wonderful thing” that would “change everything”.
Ms Johnston, who joined ABC Local as a reporter in 2017, has spent much of her career as an Australian, having spent three years as an intern in the US before landing her current job with the ABC.
In the past decade, she’s spent more than $1.4 million in the United States, spending about $800,000 on US-made products.
She said she was excited about her first flight, saying she was “really happy to be flying it”.
Ms Johnson said the aircraft, which is powered by an external battery, has been designed to allow her to operate from home in the country, which means she can’t go to the office for work.
She also said she found the experience “really great”.
“The first time I used the drone was a couple of months ago, and I’m not going to lie, it’s really cool,” Ms Johnston said.
“You can control the flight, the camera can be on you, and you can control everything in your environment.”
It’s really convenient, it works really well, it is super affordable, and it’s a great technology.
“Ms Johnston said the drone’s capabilities would allow her and her co-workers to work from home.
She added that the aircraft had helped her to better focus on the job.”
The drone was really helpful to me because I can now concentrate more on my job and my career,” she said.
