Today in Media Files, the ABC is merging its news and radio divisions in the ACT, as it announces the winners of its content fund.

ABC's news and radio divisions merge. The ABC is to merge its news and radio divisions in Canberra. The roles of news editor and ABC Local manager -- where the former is, obviously, head of the news division, and the latter is head of the radio division for the ACT -- will be combined into the single new role of editor, Canberra. In a message to staff yesterday, ABC management said it "made sense" for the news and radio divisions to "come together as one team".

      Not completely, yet. I believe that it still uses the occasional word containing more than two syllables.
