Jana Wendt, the host of Nine’s Sunday program, has landed a high profile gig on The Bulletin, replacing Jennifer Byrne in the successful “Lunch with..” column.

Wendt’s move to take up regular lunching and interviewing tightens the already strong links between the struggling Bulletin and the Nine Network’s Sunday program. The links between the magazine and Business Sunday are already tight: Business Sunday is now called “Business Sunday with The Bulletin.

And this is just what PBL CEO John Alexander wants. It might be good for The Bulletin, but for Sunday and Business Sunday?
