Fairfax Sub Editors and Slimmer Newspapers

Good evening Stuart,

Fairfax have really shot themselves in the foot by sacking 35 sub editors, they're always the ones who get the blame for mistakes, errors and general poor judgement. What are they going to say now? "Oh sorry, the printing press decided to change a few paragraphs"?

On the plus side, at least you won't need two seats on the bus or train to fit the newspaper, and I wouldn't be too concerned about the lost advertising revenue, I'm sure that there's a whole bunch of weight loss companies who would love to sponsor "The Slimmer Morning Herald".

Canberra Radio Movements

Congratulations to Capital Radio’s Duncan McCrea (Update: Spelling corrected, sorry Duncan) who yesterday had his first (as far as I can recall) hosting gig on 2CC. Duncan did what Kris Mckenzie would have done before he left, and filled in for Mike Welsh on the drive show. The show only went for an hour and was probably on par with the first hour of Peter Higgins on 2UE’s middawn program on Friday morning. Both of them are pretty much new to hosting talkback, and Peter was sounding pretty good by about the third hour, I wouldn’t be surprised if Duncan puts in an even better performance next time he fills in.

For those of you wondering, last time I checked Duncan was the local panel operator for the John Laws Morning Show, and occasionally works in the Capital Radio newsroom. He previously worked for the now defunct Radio2.

Over at FM 104.7, Sarah Robinson, part of the “Chris and Sarah for Breakfast” program, is leaving the station at the end of the show on May the 1st (Tuesday next week). Mason Edwards left the breakfast show at the end of last year for sister station NXFM in Newcastle, leaving Chris Welldon and Sarah behind. A replacement show will be announced shortly, and Chris will remain with the station.

Anybody Able To Help?

Does anybody have a recording of a promo for Channel Seven’s Sunrise program, recorded at some stage between 9am on Tuesday (April 24) and 6am Wednesday (April 25)?

There is a negotiable prize on offer to the first person (and possibly also the second if I’m feeling generous) to supply a copy of the promo with the person wearing a blue jumper (me) visible in the background.

This offer is only available for a limited time, so if you can assist, please either leave a comment below or send an email to
