Change of Management at City News

Ntp 4 July 2007 1

About a week back we got news that there had been a changing of the guard at CityNews. It took a while but eventually we got a response. Although not the official statement we were hoping for, outlining the circumstances of the change as apparently the Directors were keen to “not make a fuss”, we did get this from CityNews Editor Jorian Gardner;

“Yes, It’s correct that Michael Hawke no longer works with CityNews. We are very pleased to have on board our new General Manager Nick Samaras.”

Mr Hawke was not much loved by a few here at RiotACT. Should we expect a change in the content of CityNews?

Well although I could find little current on Mr Samras it appears (care of this piece back in ’04 on ABC’s AM program) a Brisbane boy by his name was the CEO of Global Intertrade. Of interest was this titbit;

“Mr Samaras, and the Spanish family which owns his company, already has one publication in Australia – the monthly Adelaide Review.

The Foreign Investment Review Board recently granted permission for the Review to be published weekly, but it’s still not allowed to contain any news items.”

The Adelaide Review… how to destroy a masthead.
