The Age has announced that it’s entire journalist contingent will be moving from it’s Spencer Street headquarters to the electorate office of Premier Daniel Andrews in Noble Park.
Fairfax Chairman Peter Costello said the move had been in the works for some time and brushed off suggestions it was a conflict of interest.
“Splitting the business between being the personal Pravda of Daniel Andrews and the mouthpiece for Domain has been challenging, but this was clearly a business and logistical decision,” Costello said.
“Jon Faine has already been based there for some time so he’ll get to re-unite with his former colleagues and maybe even sew a cheerleading outfit or two for the rest of the staff.”
ABC Melbourne staff will move into the same offices sometime before Christmas.
