Canberra Times puts out call for new General Manager …. on competitor Seek

By Az 4 March 2014 27

Seek ad for Canberra Times General Manager
Things must be getting pretty rough at Fairfax if they can’t get a job response for the General Manager’s position via their own advertising network.

[My contacts] inside CT report a major shake-up underway which may see Canberra’s only daily rag reduced to a tiny operation operating out of someone’s mum’s basement. Printed edition to be dropped entirely.

Does anyone care? Or do people only access CT to backdoor the Fairfax “paywall”?

What’s Your opinion?

Interesting development, Noel Towell spoke of colleagues working on some hot stories, but seems those colleagues aren’t Canberra Times. Story about the public trustee fraud today (http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/alleged-fraud-at-act-public-trustee-carried-out-over-seven-years-20140306-349jp.html) is credited to John Silvester, crime reporter for The Age in Melbourne.

Is the story really so big that a metro newsroom wanted to take it over? Are the CT really so short on people they had to shop a big story out interstate?

It’s interesting, wonder what it means.

hot story = record high temperatures.
Wasn’t this the BOM and CSIRO story earlier in the week?

Well his exact phrasing was “hot shit” indicating broader subject matter, but I prefer wording that doesn’t demean my intelligence.

Maybe he meant there was another food poisoning story, this time at a curry restaurant.
That can be a much broader issue in toilet.

I know someone involved in that matter, and the story (at least, the first one) was written by a CT reporter.

There’s much more to the matter that will come out, too.

Interesting, thanks for posting.

Very interesting point – I looked at the story, but didn’t take note of the byline (smacks self over wrist). Perhaps it has something to do with the the need for “the Canberra Times business to have close relationships with government…..” – either that or there’s interstate links in the alleged misdeeds in the PTO.
