Tips and rumours

Only a few sleeps left until ABC changes ... the One Nation candidate who isn't running for One Nation ... who's buying up all the Fairfax? ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Guthrie's ABC. We've been told that D-Day for the major restructure at the ABC is approaching fast, with a tipster telling us the announcement will come on November 14. As previously reported at Crikey, the plan involves focusing on "audio" and "video", with the shake-up believed to be the end of previous empires within the organisation. Our tipster says to expect the move to announce three "content teams" instead of divisions, with Gaven Morris to head up news, David Anderson to head up the specialist and entertainment team and Michael Mason to lead the community and regional team. This is just the start of major changes to the organisation, which managing director Michelle Guthrie has brought to the board for approval after a period of consultation with staff.
