Ashraf Abdullah, who runs the blog Jejak Pujangga, has been appointed Group Editor of TV3. This is a new post created under new Media Prima news head honcho Ahmad Talib. MP's three other channels - 7, 8 and 9 - will share a GE in Manja Ismail, who is currently Berita Harian GE. A veteran is expected to come back to BH to take over from Manja. Ashraf, 42, left NST in 2004 soon after the group came under Kalimullah Masheerul Hassan. He was a News Editor of the paper, which was still a broadsheet then.
Another blogger may come back to NST as a senior editor, she was overheard telling Dr Mahahtir at a book launch this afternoon.
