mis-pronunciation of ordinary words

Once upon a time, in the not so distant past it was taken for granted that presenters/announcers would have a good general education, especially on Aunty ABC. In fact the ABC had many training programmes and you will find that many of the better announcers in the commercial world actually started with the ABC.
But all that has gone by the board with funding problems and now we come to my current “gripe” – the word “co-operation”, “co-operative” and derivatives therefrom.
It’s bad enough to hear this group of words mis-pronounced as “corporation”, and “corporative” on the commercial networks but now it has crept into the ABC together with that nasal imitation of American female voices.
Where is the training?
