Rushton to BuzzFeed. Unlike the offspring of many dynasties at Holt Street, Chris Mitchell's stepdaughter Gina Rushton appears to be no News Corp loyalist. She's been lured away from The Australian by BuzzFeed to be its new breaking news reporter from May 10.
It's a pretty important role at BuzzFeed, says Australian boss Simon Crerar. It was previously held by Mark Di Stefano, but it has been empty since he was promoted up to political editor. Rushton will follow everything that doesn't fit into one of BuzzFeed's defined rounds, but also, Crerar says, do her own investigations and break news.
