Meade joins the Murdoch migration. Crikey understands that The Australian's veteran media reporter Amanda Meade is the latest journalist to take redundancy from News Limited. Meade, best known from her decade editing the paper's Media Diary column, has worked at the paper for 18 years out of its Sydney bureau. News Limited sources say Meade, who was unavailable for comment this morning, has received the go ahead to leave and is still weighing up her options for the future.
There has been a great deal of movement in The Oz's media section of late. Former Daily Telegraph associate editor Nick Tabakoff recently replaced Stephen Brook as media editor while long-serving marking writer Simon Canning took redundancy earlier this year. Veteran broadcast media writer Michael Bodey is on long service leave until early next year. Crikey is regularly updating our list of News Limited departures. -- Matthew Knott
