Press Release – Scoop Media Services
Experienced Wellington editor / journalist Gordon Campbell will be taking the helm of the independent news-site Scoop.co.nz from this month.
“As a new company formed to give Scoop a new lease of life, Scoop Media Services couldn’t be happier to welcome Gordon as our new Editor,” said Craig Pellett, the chair of the board overseeing the company.
“Gordon’s strengths as a highly regarded journalist are well known. In terms of Scoop he has been a mainstay of almost all of its original content in recent years.
“He is extremely well placed to bring about a new direction and higher profile for the overall quality of content on the site, and its capacity to offer a spectrum of voices on issues of the day.”
“Gordon has the full backing of the board and will initially be focusing his energies on developing a team of editorial contributors to enrich Scoop’s scope and increase its readership,” said Pellett.
“A well planned approach will reinforce Scoop’s established presence as a leading home for independent journalism and the aggregation of media statements. These are changes that will gather pace through the remainder of 2014″.
