Jorian Gardner stood down from WIN News?

WIN have confirmed to us that Lachlan Kennedy is now the acting Chief of Staff for WIN News.

We’re currently chasing down why this would be the case and what’s up with the controversial and colourful news director, Jorian Gardner.

More on this as it comes to hand. We’ve requested comment from all the players.

UPDATE: We’re hearing that Jessica Good is also no longer with us. As a JG myself the purge against these initials chills the blood.

What’s Your opinion?

Hopefully one of his 4 followers in Twitter will give us the goss: http://twitter.com/CNcanberra

On the plus side, the new set for Win News looks fantastic as does the weather graphics.
On the down side, the race report is annoying and even creepy at times, the political reporter is an idiot who just plagerises national reports.

WIN stayed off air until the end of A Current Affair.

That may be his crowning achievement! Now, is there anyone who can get the other tabloid current affairs regurgitator off the air?

as to the man himself, a good face for radio, a good voice for print and content that is not worth saying in any medium at all (except maybe RA).

Maybe he should restrict himself to the Fringe of reporting?

: )

And here’s me thinking that’s where he was already.

Or appropriate for radio either. Maybe print? Nah. He tried that and it was a bit dodgey as well.

I would gave thought he would have been on a fixed term contract given his appointment was to cover the maternity leave of the chief, a choice not to renew his contract maybe?

I noticed that they had toned him down a bit of late when he was presenting the odd human interest story, his early pieces were ridiculous. He’s not exactly tv presenter material..

People get their news from TV? Next you’ll be telling me they read it on dead trees!

Karma! I say they need hight restrictions on future COS’s anyone over 4″3 is acceptable.

Gobbo 12:41 pm 30 Jul 10

I am sure it wasn’t anything to do with Jorian. [sarcasm]

I think that is a good move on wins behalf, knowing him as I do it the habitual heckler he stepped the line one too many times.

Colourful Sydney Racing Identity has it right. WIN News is just a random half hour of media releases, some read and some performed to camera. No suggestion of intellectual input from anyone at all. As lame as it is dull.

Not being a regular watcher of WIN News, I saw Jorians race preview last week from Thoroughbred Park.

I saw that too, first time I’d seen or heard of this guy, and thought “what the hell? Is he a first day cadet or something?”

Win news has a chief of staff? bugger me.

The most stupid and pathetic wannabe interview I have ever seen…

Let’s hope this is true. WIN News has been pathetic since Gardner took over, both the standard of stories and the content of the bulletins. Gardner was also running the show when the embarrassing Anzac Day marathon cock-up took place and also the infamous night when the screen went black just as the news was about to begin and WIN stayed off air until the end of A Current Affair. Hopefully with the departure of Gardner we might see some professionalism at long last.
