MEDIA BRIEFS: GMTV rejigs editorial after Reuters split
GMTV has appointed senior correspondent Martin Frizell as executive
producer as part of an editorial shake-up. It follows a decision by
Reuters to pull out of its contract to provide news for GMTV, which will
bring on to its own payroll the Reuters journalists working at the
station. In addition, John Scammell has been named editorial manager and
deputy editor, while Malcolm Douglas takes on responsibility for input
from both GMTV and ex-Reuters staff.
