My new Best Friend: NZ Herald Editor Shayne Currie

As part of the NZ Herald’s 150 year celebrations, they interviewed their own Editor yesterday. ?To be honest, I think that by cleaning out a few bad apples, there might be some hope for the future after all. ?That’s some pretty straight talk from Shayne.

Yep. ?Got to provide grist for those NZ Herald Investigation mills!

That means we have something in common – we’re fighting for your readers too Shane.

And it doesn’t have to be an either/or thing, but the timeshare of their eyeballs is going to be a hard fought battle.

It will be interesting to see when the NZ Herald goes exclusively digital. ?This is going to change the internal cost dynamic quite dramatically. ?Are you going to be able to plow some of that back into quality work or does it all have to go to the shareholders?

Either way, the next 5-10 years will be exciting for everyone.
