The voice of business in Canberra

By johnboy 15 March 2006 17

ABC Radio is reporting that the Canberra Times editor, Michael Stevens, has resigned. He’s been in the job nearly 5 years.

Anyone know anything interesting?

UPDATED: The ABC has now got the story online.

Blamemonkey’s not far off the mark (comment 1). Steven’s assistant ‘Pig’ Higgins p***ed him off by bringing back the wrong takeaway just as the presses finally started to roll – late as usual. Stevens was last heard screaming “What’s this friggin’ figgin doin’ here Higgins – I asked for finger-liggen chiggen!”.
Then he flounced out – for ever.

Well, they have to get the editions to the drain droppers gnarly youth.

Trucking capacity? Have the youth of canberra become soft?

When I was a young tacker I tied two milk crates to my treddlie, filled them up with local rags, and rode around delivering them…

Until I had enough, then I found a convenient out of the way drain….

and the trucking capacity to move them to the drain I suppose.

on the other hand the freebie copies in hairdressers and take-aways do get read by a lot of bored people.

The only limiting factor being the capacity of Canberra’s stormwater drains.

Not rubbery at all Ari.

They just call up the printer and ask how many they printed.

Ari 11:46 am 15 Mar 06

… where circulation is a far more rubbery concept.

Maybe he’s going to CityNews?

terubo 11:14 am 15 Mar 06

5 years is quite long enough for anyone in that sort of position. Even if circulation figures had gone up, and not down…

I second the Bull Shit call, More likely Jump before you get pushed..

I just rang the CT editorial department (that’s on 6280 2211 for anyone interested) and was told by the editorial assistant that Mr STevens is resigning “for personal reasons”.

“He’s been with the company for quite some time,” she said, “and he and his wife have decided to pursue other endeavours.”

I call bullshit.

Blamemonkey 10:04 am 15 Mar 06

ARRRGHHH!!! I have been Censored!!! Unfortunately i do not know why Mr stevens has resigned, Possibly due to better job offer, maybe the staff didn’t like him who knows…. Can you reinstate my previous comment now JB, I think all this free time and power has gone to your head, Maybe that is why he resigned, in fear that he would get fired….

A Pastry in the shape of a hat is called a figgen
