Fairfax editor takes on additional Hunter titles

Fairfax Media’s most recent structural change has seen Port Stephens Examiner editor Anna Wolf expand her role to take on the editorship of two additional Hunter community titles.

As well as the Examiner, Ms Wood will oversee the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie Star and The Lakes Mail. The papers will not merge, and will continue to operate independently.

Former editor of The Lakes Mail David Stewart will remain as a journalist for the paper.

The changes also incorporate the rollout of NewsNow, the company’s new digital-first publishing technology.

Fairfax announced 69 redundancies in the Newcastle and Hunter region in August as part of the company’s ongoing restructure, with 46 of those being newsroom positions.
