Newstalk ZB, Pam, and Cam?

Pam Corkery’s sudden departure from Newstalk ZB to take up a press secretary position with the Internet Party has upset few and delighted more. ?One of Newstalk’s most loyal listeners is also one of the Whaleoil Ground Crew.

I am a long time loyal reader of this blog and a very, very long time loyal listener of NewstalkZB and often quote stuff in my comments that I have heard on NewstalkZB.

What was that Bryce said to me, oh yes… “if you?re playing editor now you?ll need to start taking the personal stuff out of it.”

What a patronizing hypocrite.
