Whittaker: Joining Media Watch team

The move, which Mumbrella understands will see Whittaker became a story editor on the weekly show, comes a month after he resigned from Private Media.

During his seven years at Private Media, Whittaker was deputy editor, editor and publisher of Crikey, as well as the founding editor of public sector title The Mandarin.
