Tips and rumours

Meetings but no news: ABC staff nervous ... Who's the 'Sharrimarkson' editing Joye? ... Come to the doctor! It's free! ... A cracking good yarn ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Meetings but no news: ABC staff nervous. On Monday, the executives of ABC International held a meeting to discuss what to do with the network’s international coverage in the wake of the budget, a tipster told Crikey. But it’s not yet clear to the journalists at Aunty what the outcome of this meeting was. As the ABC scrambles to plug the holes left by $10 million in budget cuts in addition to the more than $20 million it will lose as a result of the closure of the Australia Network, Crikey understands few concrete outcomes have been passed down to journalists, with the impression being that management is reluctant to rule things in or out until it knows what cuts the network will face in coming months.

    I’m with Zut – possibly the amerikan spellchecker didn’t like the ‘U’ in endeavouring but that’s just Septics for ya.
