Unspun‘s verified the story of the Jakarta Post losing a senior editor (see here). The said editor, an expat chap who has been in Indonesia and the Post for many years is taking up a position as an editor in a high society magazine.

In the meantime a young woman, said to be an expert on hangover cures, is leaving her job as editor of a hospitality/tourism/lifestyle magazine that covers Jakarta and Java to join the Post. It is not known who will replace her or where the existing editor of the high society magazine will go after reaching, so to speak, a peak in his career.

One thought on “Muscial chairs at Jakarta’s English-language publications

  1. Yeah, a friend pointed me to the articles written by the young woman for Jakarta Post. I hope that was rock bottom for JP. Glad she didn’t stay too long to cause any more damage to an already sinking ship.
