2CC/2CA looking for a new senior journalist

July 22nd, 2009 at 03:32pm

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:

Senior Journalist

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:

  • 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.

Good luck to Jane, good luck to Capital Radio and good luck to those who apply.

    It is a bit sad – I will miss Jane too.

    How long has she been at 2CC, Samuel, and to where does she journey next?

    You’re testing my memory now…I had to think about that one as I couldn’t work out if she started at Capital Radio in 2005 or 2006, but then I remembered that she wasn’t there when I did work experience there in 2005, so it must have been 2006.

    I gather that she is heading back to Tasmania…to do what, I don’t know.

    I wish Laura Tchilinguirian who used to read the news on 106 in the late 90s would came back to Canberra. She was absolutely brilliant.

    There’s a familiar name…where is Laura these days? I’m sure that I saw her name the other day and I can’t remember where or why.

    When I googled her name she seemed to appear simultaneously at a radio station in Melbourne and at another in Sydney. So I’m not sure where she is now. I used to have a very brief grab of her on an audio cassette reading the news. Alas, I can’t find the tape – I have so many 🙁
