The Age
ran an item on a New Yorker magazine profile of Lonely Planet publishers Tony and Maureen Wheeler a couple of weeks ago.

Somehow, however, this little vignette didn’t get reported – but now that the edition of the New Yorkerhas reached our shores it will be interesting to see where these comments lead: “[Tony] relishes being the face of Lonely Planet and of independent travel, regularly rising before dawn—and ignoring Maureen’s tart remarks—to appear on Australia’s Today show, a program that he acknowledges is “pretty awful”.
