Good afternoon, media people–today we have a roundup of moves in the media industry.
George Hirsch, chairman of the board and publishing director at La Cucina Italia, is stepping down as soon as the company finds a replacement who “knows a lot more about the digital world than I do,” Hirsch told the NYT. (NYT)
And on the other side of the world, two senior reporters for the New Zealand version of 60 Minutes have lost their jobs when their bureau was closed down and they declined to relocate. Amanda Millar and Alison Horwood did not want to move from Wellington to Auckland, so…they didn’t. The other staff members are in relocate-or-redundancy discussions now. (The Herald)
