The changes keep coming at MediaWorks as two more senior staffers depart—UPDATED

The changes keep coming at MediaWorks as two more senior staffers depart—UPDATED

Last week, MediaWorks continued its restructuring process by announcing it would operate one newsroom across its TV, radio and online assets, with Mark Jennings taking on the top role. It also announced the integration of digital across the business and, as a result of these changes, the roles of TV chief executive Paul Maher and head of interactive Siobhan McKenna were disestablished. Chief executive Mark Weldon said there would be no more job losses in TV and interactive. But it's thought two more long-serving senior MediaWorks staff members are also set to depart: senior legal counsel/company secretary Clare Bradley, who has been with the company since 2000, and chief financial officer and director of technology Peter Crossan, who has been with the company since 1999.

MediaWorks doubles down on local versions of international formats, sings from the rooftops about its reach

If you’re in show business, you've got to put on show and MediaWorks, a company with a new chief executive, a new sense of confidence after negotiating a receivership and plenty of big new shows to crow about, put one on last night for its new season launch at Shed 10 in Auckland. So should it be exuding this much optimism?

ANZ invests in the property market with Grand Designs production partnership

ANZ holds around one third of the country's home loan market and it's made a concerted push to retain that—and presumably improve that—recently with a new campaign showing the frisson of buying property at auction. Last year it put its name beside TVNZ's Art of the Architect and now it's backing the other team, signing on as a production partner for the upcoming New Zealand version of Grand Designs New Zealand.

And the overnight figures seem to indicate the first battle has gone to the side of DIY porn, with The Block NZ winning the lion’s share of the audience in the key demographic categories.

Last night, in a big shed down on the docks of Auckland town, Jeremy Corbett and Hillary Barry helped launch MediaWorks new season line-up.
