More blood at the Canberra Times

By johnboy 21 February 2013 27

Independent Australia has a story on more empty desks in the tree killer’s lair:

Approximately a dozen call centre staff and 20-30 classifieds staff will be outsourced in the coming months; as well as a number of positions in accounts and pre-press getting cut altogether.

It is understood that similar positions in The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald will share the same fate soon after the Canberra transition has been completed.

The services will be taken over by TeleTech, an American-based Business Process Outsourcing company operating in 24 countries including Canada, Costa Rica and The Philippines. As yet it is unknown where the jobs will be moved to.

Plenty of freelance work and jobs out out here in the bush 😉

The CT is going tabloid, just a few month after the others.

And the SMH is about to reinvent itself in tabloid size. Wonder if the Canberra times is going to do that soon too? Like the Sunday paper every day.

There wasn’t an official announcement from the CT that they are going tabloid but the word is that it will happen on March 4 along with the SMH and The Age. The Old English masthead will go and be replaced by a variation of the Sunday masthead.

The Canberra Times is *not* becoming a tabloid. Both The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age published front page stories today giving details about the new format. The CT today did not have a similar story. Apparently the CT is happy with the old broadsheet format because – unlike Sydney and Melbourne – the CT’s major sales are by home delivery where people read it over breakfast, and there are very few people who buy the paper to read while commuting on public transport where the smaller page size is a plus.

    the broadsheet obsession was always a sign they were antiquated dinosaurs.

    What matters is the content of the words, not what they’re printed on.
