Horse’s Mouth: Sinead Boucher, Stuff

Sinead Boucher’s career on the Fairfax digital team started in what she describes as a “broom cupboard” at a time when the site was seen as a nice-to-have tag-on to the print business. Now, as she sits in the chief executive chair at Stuff, she reflects on how much things have changed.

Fairfax's quest for scale sees six of its magazines sold off—UPDATED

A few months back we asked Fairfax if rumours that its magazine portfolio was on the block were true. Given the company had just put its magazine content under the Stuff umbrella, it seemed like a surprising move. But while Fairfax said no at the time, an email to staff today from group executive editor Sinead Boucher has confirmed six of its "smaller niche" titles—including reigning magazine of the year NZ Life & Leisure—have been sold as it continues to focus on its "core audiences and verticals".

Fairfax shacks up with Facebook, Stuff gets first Kiwi crack at Instant Articles

Fairfax shacks up with Facebook, Stuff gets first Kiwi crack at Instant Articles

Facebook appears to be steadily eating the internet and, in August this year, it took over from Google as the biggest driver of web traffic to news sites. It’s a bit of a love/hate relationship, however, with many publishers relying on the network for traffic, ad revenue and validation/stimulation, but also fearing that they are vulnerable to a tweak of the algorithm or demands for more money to reach its audience. Earlier this year, Facebook announced the arrival of Instant Articles, which let selected media brands publish content directly to Facebook and display it in newsfeeds without requiring users to leave. And, as part of a regional deal with Fairfax, stuff.co.nz will be the first local brand that gets to play with it in New Zealand.

Fairfax makes another digital push with latest shakeup, responds to reports of job cuts—UPDATED

Fairfax yesterday announced that it would be restructuring its business to align it more closely with a "modern newsroom," which is digital-centric and focused on audiences and content rather than traditional mastheads. This immediately led to interest from all major media outlets and speculation as to how many job cuts the changes could result in.

Nielsen numbers show stuff.co.nz moving up the top ten rankings, as other big sites lose audience

Last month, Fairfax announced some more changes to the structure of its newsroom, with a big focus on becoming a digital first media company. And Nielsen numbers show its hub stuff.co.nz continues to move up the top ten most popular site rankings while the majority have gone down year on year. But is this digital growth translating to dollars?

Online audience arms race continues, stuff.co.nz reclaims Auckland title from nzherald.co.nz—UPDATED

Back in October last year, stuff.co.nz knocked nzherald.co.nz off the top spot in Auckland for the first time. Fairfax saw it as a big win, but NZ Herald editor Tim Murphy tweeted that a response to our story saying it was merely a blip after it climbed back on top soon after. Now, Nielsen online ratings for January show volatility in APN's numbers since then and a steady rise for Fairfax, which has once again claimed the top spot by the smallest of margins.
