Who would be Financial Times’ new Indonesian correspondent?.

January 7th, 2010

Back in October Financial Times Correspondent John Aglionby packed his bags and headed home to Ole Blighty for a position in the paper after living in Jakarta for more than a decade.

FT has yet to appoint a successor to John but our correspondent Unspun has heard that they are looking. Rumor has it that after a series of interviews they have narrowed the list down to three people. Two of them are  members of the Jakarta Foreign Correspondents Club. One is an editor in an English language newspaper and another is acting bureau chief for an international wire service.

The third man is an internal FT candidate.

The FT would gradually make a decision but in the meantime freelancer Kath Demopoulos is filling in and covering stories from Indonesia for the FT.

    or perhaps it could be any of the casualties of the recent purge at Jakarta Globe, about which you seem to have written nothing???

    Haven’t seen a whole lot from the new guy – 3 stories in 5 weeks. How long will he last ?
