New ABC MD - A good thing or a bad thing?

It's not official, but the trade papers are saying the ABC board has picked the editorial director for Fairfax, Mr Mark Scott, to be our new Managing Director.

Bad thing: A newspaper guy to run a bunch of television and radio stations? Does this make sense? Possibly. Might be good to get someone who can step outside that axis.

Good thing: Apparantly Mr Scott has been quite key in the inception and growth of Fairfax's online holdings. That's a step forward as far as I'm concerned right there.

Of course, it's pretty funny when your current employer uses this headline to announce it.

Welcome Mr Scott. I look forward to seeing where we go from here.
