2CC and 2CA are on the lookout for a new senior journalist, which sadly means that Jane Turner (who is, in my opinion, Canberra’s best newsreader) is leaving. I would like to see Jane take over the anchor role on WIN News, but alas she isn’t sticking around this fair city. I will miss Jane’s dulcet tones and professionalism, as well as her wit which was evident when conversing with program hosts.
I wish Jane the best of luck for the future.
Anyhoo, in Jane’s absence, the following needs to be filled:
The Capital Radio Newsroom is searching for someone to manage and lead our news team.
The successful applicant will lead a full-time team of 3 and require the following:
- Previous experience in managing a newsroom or at least 5 years news experience.

- Strong presentation and writing skills.
- A passion for news and be across local, national and international issues.
- To be able to communicate with our audience via our talk station and adult music station.
This is a rare opportunity to join our group at a senior level.
