Is this man right for the job

This is Anthony Flannery, the new head of news and current affairs at TVNZ. He’s from Channel Nine Australia and has worked on tabloid television current affairs shows for some time.
It’s interesting that this is a top news story in New Zealand at the moment – see my earlier post on job cuts at TVNZ.
For more on Mr Flannery, here’s a link to this morning’s New Zealand Herald online story. More on this later, I’m off to judge some magazine awards and will be out of the office for most of the morning.
One thing though, check out the ABC (Australia) Media Watch files on A Current Affair‘s past ethical history. Here’s one from 2003, but there’s more and the Media Watch archive is searchable.
Is this the future of “charter” television in New Zealand?
