All available content about each school, from facilities to study tracks, is outlined as well. A sub-section contains articles on education-related topics, such as situations parents face in choosing their children’s prospective Independent school. “We are thrilled to launch our Victorian Independent Schools Hub across The Age.

Our must-use hub will guide parents through a sector th

GEM FM taps new breakfast host

Inverell, NSW station GEM FM has welcomed Tom Lillis as the new breakfast host.  He landed the role after finishing TAFE NSW Ultimo’s Diploma of Screen and Media (Radio) course this year.  Lillis previously graduated from the school with a Certificate IV in Electrotechnology (Electrician) and was set to embark on an electrician job, but thought radio would be a better fit for him.  “I’ve always been keen on media and wondered what it would be like to work in the industry.

By Jonas Lopez in Media News on
A group of Australian football fans have banded together to establish a new digital publication called Kick 360, reported Mumbrella.  The content portal will carry news articles and feature pieces from all aspects of Australia’s football community, from the A-League and NPL, to the grassroots clubs. A podcast is also in action.  Joey Lynch, founder of FTBL.com.au, and noted football writer Samantha Lewis have agreed to be part of the contributor pool.  Co-founder Neal Symons said establishing the site came out of a need for more cohesive information about Australian football, even alluding to how the community was affected with the closure of notable outlets such as SBS’ The World Game.  “Media is one of the hardest industries to monetise effectively, with the rise of social media and the changes in consumer consumption, and as such we’ve seen the demise of many websites and outlets that we religiously read as fans. There is a need for great features and coverage, and w
