The Australian’s Simon Canning has become the third veteran of Australia’s small community of media and marketing writers to depart in recent days.
Canning, who spent nine years writing about advertising and marketing for The Australian’s Media section, and eight years before that editing AdBrief, has accepted redundancy. Mumbrella understands that he leaves The Australian on good terms. The Australian’s media section is also about to get a new editor with Nick Tabakoff due to return to replace Stephen Brook who moves into a writing role.
Today also marks Tim Addington’s last day as editor of B&T magazine after nearly four years at the helm. He will head up communications for creative agency The Works.
And media and marketing writer Julian Lee took redundancy from the Sydney Morning Herald a week ago.
