Michelle Grattan migrates to UC

By johnboy 4 February 2013 8

Mumbrella have a piece on the Queen of the Press Gallery moving to semi-retirement.

One of Australia’s leading political reporters Michelle Grattan has resigned from The Age to a position of professorial fellow with the University of Canberra.

In her new role she will continue to operate as a journalist, writing for The Conversation as the website’s associate editor (politics) and chief political correspondent and commenting in radio and television.

Not getting any younger it’s probably a good move all around.


UPDATE 04/01/13 16:22: Painfully late in the day UC’s had something to say on the subject:

Michelle Grattan, who is currently the political editor of The Age newspaper, will take on a diverse role which will include teaching and research projects in politics and political communication, lecturing, public commentary and strategic advice.

Alongside her academic role, and with the agreement of the University, she will continue as a practising journalist, joining The Conversation as Associate Editor (Politics) and Chief Political Correspondent and commenting in radio and television.

The University has admired Michelle Grattan’s contribution to her profession for many years, and in 1994 recognised this with an honorary doctorate from the University.

When a job at a Uni that doesn’t even make the Top 400 list is preferable to working for one of the top two media outlets in the country, just how screwed must Fairfax be?

Damn, my job isn’t in the top 400 list either! Is it worth going on anymore?

quote comment=”457468″](interesting note that heaps of people are saying she’s always been with The Age, forgetting she started at Canberra Times in its hay day).

Was the CT printed on a farm in the old days? 😉

Bwahahahaha…gold medal with bar. 🙂

And C_C, who cares? Employers don’t routinely check the ranking of your uni before hiring as you. As if it matters what subjective “surveys”, that all say different things, say.

Touchy. Regardless, just saying it’s a big and sudden step backward for her.

Hmm interesting. I see the UC have also put former L A green Meradith Hunter on the payroll as well. Must be a few bob left in the salary bucket. What other ‘noteables’ do they have on the payroll.

The ACT Brumbies?

That deal makes this current part time student very happy that Service and Amenities fees had to be re-introduced!

It seems JB would have to move a lot further to the left to have a hope of getting a job with UC group thinkers.

Maybe there’s a UC professorial fellow position for you too JB, being 40 and all….?! 🙂
