Packer clacker hack Dyer’s Hong Kong flier

Clacker-468x676Avid readers of Dr Mumbo will know he is a big fan of the NT News.

So it is with great sadness he reports the paper’s deputy editor Paul Dyer, the Walkley Award winning architect of such immortal headlines as: “Eyeful tower”, “Dogs of phwoaarr!” and Dr Mumbo’s favourite “Why I stuck a cracker up my clacker” is departing the newspaper to work as weekend online editor, Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong.

Dyer’s clacker’s line resurfaced again last week used again in what was perhaps the best headline on the Packer/Gyngell brawl…

Nt-NewsAlso departing James Dunlevie who Dr Mumbo understands is behind some of the NT News’s great tweets. 

Things like this:

NT TweetHe is joining aunty as digital editor of ABC, Darwin.

Dr Mumbo hopes the pair can take some of the NT News’ flair with them to spice things up at the more conservative environs of the Wall Street Journal and ABC.

Congrats gents and best of luck to NT News chief of staff Matt Williams, who has been promoted to deputy editor replacing Dyer.
