Not a good sign in terms of reach for the sport that WWOS doesn’t feel it’s worth having a specific racing journo in its ranks.

Also explains the trend of his tweets in recent times….

Because Speedcafe only runs stories that County Hall approve of? Breaking the years biggest story would suggest otherwise.

Given that Nine Entertainment are making big cuts to its journalist ranks, reasonable to assume any motor sport reporting will be covered by a staff writer.

I assumed the partnership with News Corp was funding this role for Speedcafe and not a reflection on WWOS.

Someone in Supercars must have whispered in a few journos ears at the weekend to speculate on series playoffs & see what the fans think. Quite the coincidence both AA and V8Sleuth have come out with the same articles a day apart….

Yes, probably likely. Doesn’t say much for the reach of the sport though does it.

Are they relying on staff writers to produce articles for AFL, League, Soccer, Cricket, Tennis etc….?

In terms of a profession you’d think working for a larger media empire is more appealing than a niche website? Even if the work will be copy & pasted by News.
