Media briefs: poachings at Guardian, Oz … costly ads … Hartcher dunked …

New faces at Guardian Australia and the Oz, as well as other media tidbits of the day.

Viner and Johnston bed down their teams. It’s never a bad thing when your boss gets promoted, as several Guardian Australia journalists are finding out. The now US-based former Guardian Aus editor Kath Viner is pulling her star recruits stateside. Guardian Australia’s deputy editor Lee Glendinning announced this morning that she’ll soon join Guardian US as deputy editor. It’s an interesting development for the local operation — Glendinning, a local who started her career at the SMH before doing stints at The Guardian‘s London mothership, was widely seen as the natural successor to founding editor Viner. It’s not clear who’ll replace Viner’s replacement Emily Wilson when she decides to leave.
