“There were two very long meetings of senior people at The Age to discuss how
to turn the paper’s sports section into a tabloid. Andrew Jaspan presented

wrapping sport around the existing tabloid sections, and that’s the
recommendation he flew to Sydney with to present to Fairfax CEO Fred Hilmer.”
