Blogger heads TV3 news

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.

ah bro congrats to ashraf. he was my senior before and i know he can do the job

welcome back mior to berita harian. i do noy know much of u but i do know that you are a nice person, tak sombong

and the woman blogger, kak ena, welcome back to nst. nst needs you badly as you would surely be able to repair the damage done in nst under the ever powerful bp, lee ah chai and lionel

and to manja, off you go

itulah bro, the moral from the story is jangan berlagak or ego, that was the problem exactly with manja and hishammuddin aum, once dah pegang jawatan top terus tak sedar diri

i beleive kak ena nad mior would create a miracle tahniah

This is Ahmad Talib's party. He is getting rid of the old faces in the NST and TV3. Let him have his fun. But I can bet my last dollar his fun will be over when ratings in TV3 drop drastically and circulation in NST goes down under. Already, morale in the NST is so bad that staff are thinking of ways to leave a sinking ship, or are waiting for a VSS. Ahmad, have fun while it lasts, because reality will sink in. In the meantime, I urge NST staff to stay calm in the face of uncertainty and adversity. This madness in NST must stop.

nstman said...

Media Prima has been turned into a giant propaganda machine with the ascension of Ahmad Talib. But the people are not blind. Now the people will be turning increasingly to the Internet for the truth. Barisan Nasional is digging its own grave. Rocky, come back to the people. Pse dont join miscreants who will eventually bite the dust in the next general election. Already, I heard there have been a few prominent resignations in the NST news desk. This will eventually open the floodgates.

Rocky, People say you are a man of principle unlike some who would even work with turncoats to save his skin and piss others. You deserve to be where you are today because you stood your ground unlike some who would even sell their principle to be recognized. That’s the ROCKY difference between you and your friends. Congrats bro!

Ashraf was a good reporter, a well-liked editor and most of all, a good teacher.

As a cub reporter under him, I benefited greatly from his tutelage.

I wish him all the luck.

Good for you Ashraf! Ahmad must have trained you well. I heard people in NST like Lionel and Chandra are pissed off knowing all the Ahmad Talib's men are coming back! hehe! they shouldnt worry actualy. They can work for malaysia insider like joan lau. What about Ah Chye? Is he going to resign? If these people are really good, they should not worry. Ther is a malay saying - sekali air bah, sekali air berubah. Last time the air bah swept away Ahmad Talib. Now the air bah swept away others. Ashraf will do well in TV. Manja also. Because they are journalists.

Ashraf is a good guy lah...

He was at NST when the circulation was the highest.

Kalimullah, Brendan, Ah Chai and Chandra brought circulation down to the current 90,000 (minus the discounted sales to schools).

Rocky,

Buat apa Mior nak datang balik ke BH, dah le Mus tak dapat jadi GE ganti Manja. Mahfar pun melepas lagi kalau Mus tak naik. Dulu ingat ada peluang naik SGM, tapi Hisham letak kawan dia Ghafar jadi bos Metro. Itu le namanya rezeki. Tengok Datuk* Mior, kena VSS dulu, kerja tempat lain, tapi akhirnya jadi GE juga.

* Tak lama lagi

NST's resistance has finally broken down. Our struggle against fascism, lies, treachery, deceit is over. Our plea to the powers=that-be to save the paper has been given a wide berth. We surrender.

It is no secret that Ashraf memang orang kesayangan PM, from his Kuantan days.

Ashraf will do anything for Najib. I know so.

Congratulations to all.

I stopped buying NST/Berita Harian when Kalimullah started to show his true colours. Could not stomach the way they inundated Dollah, KJ and the likes with praises, which were not in tune at all with how the rakyat were feeling. Also could not stomach the disgusting manner they went after Tun Dr. Mahathir especially coming from those who had been just the average Joes throughout their lives. Could not stomach the praises that Kalimullah heaped on himself. Most of all, I could not stomach the irresponsible way they were presenting the news and carrying out their agendas that could have destabilised the country. Even now, the revebrations of what Dollah & the likes had done can still be felt. They messed up big time!

Manja, siapa dia org yang kencing manis kata tu. Tahniah Meor dan Nuraina! Hebat betul org VSS dalam pentadbiran PM Najib ni. Mat Talib dan Rocky pun dapat VSS. T Kasih Dato Seri kerana bagi peluang kepada mereka semua yang sekarang dapat buat duit lebih sikit. Harapan Umno, mereka akan berjaya dapat menang 2/3 majoriti dalam PRU-13 nanti. Umno memang terkenal membantu mereka yang susah. Syabas Umno - Parti Keramat Melayu Bersatu!

Depa ada sebut Enam Jahanam BH – Manja, Mus Omaq, Mahpaq, Yati, Azizi dan Azhaq Samah. Betui ka! NST pun ada Enam Jahanam – Syed Nazri, Kamrul Derih, Rehman Rasid, Chin Chai, Lionel Moron dan Chandra Segaq. Hebat depa noh…buleh buat filim Dirty Dozen! Depa semua banyak kenangan manis di NSTP.

this moron nstman is nothing but a disgruntled arsehole. it is not prominent if pigs like ahcai run with the tail between their legs bcoz bloody dirty swines are like that.
i think media prima is doing the right thing by roping in experienced journalist like Noraina and Asraff.
These two are not half-past-six copy n paste kindda journalist that achai is all about.
achai is a bloody cheap scoundrel and he knows what he did in china.

Harap harap Pak Mus, Mahfar, Azizi pun `bungkus' sama kali ini...apa sumbangan mereka pd kemajuan BH???

Masih ingat bagaimana Pak Mus melobi sakan nak dapatkan pangkat nombor 2 dlm BH.

Ingat lagi bagaimana budak kecik yg mentah (Azizi) dapat jadi CNE kat BH. Jawatan dapat tapi respek dr staff takde. Hobi utama, mengurat budak2 baru.

Hentikan semua ini. Mungkin masa untuk mencari kotak sudah tiba..

Mohon Keadilan.

dear MANinNST

i would like to refer to this line that you wrote:

lu tak malu ka woi...

how can u write such a thing. i am very very sad uwah. how dare you. ah chai is the best guy in nst and he is an example for others to follow. he is a idola. let me tell you why. someone who was areporter for a short while and went on to become a sub editor. he was better known as the bookie. was so lazy. never want to work extra. if he is asked to work would run to the dr and claim mc. and yet he was promoted as ee. is that not an example to others that you can be lazy and bodoh but u will be promoted if u are a bookie

what big offence did he do in china. dont make a big issue lah. all he did was went out jalan jalan cari makan ambil udara segar while the other reporters were busy on assignment. what is wrong in that. after all, he is the ee and can cetak rompak the story from bh or bernama. itu pun mau kecoh kah.

whatever it is ah chai you are agift to journalism

NSTman,

Oh kamu ni si Ah Chai tu ke? Patut le NST tu lingkup sebab kamu ada di situ.

Kamu ingat orang sekarang ni percaya sangat ke cerita di internet? Mereka pun bukan bodoh. Tengoklah Malaysia Today dan Malaysian Insider dll. Banyak sangat penipuan dan spin la...

Pakatan rakyat tu pun akan lingkup tak lama lagi la. Kamu benci dengan UMNO tapi kenapa pakai nama NSTman?

Kan NST tu kepunyaan UMNO? Takkan pulak:

NST = UMNO
NSTman = UMNOman???

Tak malu la lu pakai nama kompeni kepunyaan musuh kamu!

Pakai la nama DAPman ke, PKRman ke, HARAKAHman ke atau SUARA KEADILANman?

Ajak ler ramai-ramai kawan-kawan kamu resign dari NST. Pi join Malaysian Insider Penipu tu!

Congrat's to Ashraf. Selamat Bertugas.

Dear Ashraf...good to hear youre back bro. Having worked with both Nuraina and Ashraf in the past, I must say I still remember the both of you as very nice people who were down to earth and cared for the reporters. This is something the dumb Ah Chai & Lionel never were and never will be. Anyway, my sincere hope is that you will both continue with your kind and humble ways and never let the power given to you get the better of you. What goes around always comes around and being humble and good to your fellow mankind never hurt anyone. So, to the both of you, I wish you the best. To Nuraina, I hope you are the saviour we have long been waiting for to save the NST. It was great working under you in the past and so hope it will be the same again. Cheers!

1. Tidak ada satu pun komen-komen di atas berilmiah. Semuanya hanya mengutuk orang tanpa memberi pendapat yang berilmiah.

2. Tidak ada satu pun komen-komen di atas yang boleh merangsang atau membantu akhbar NST/BH/Metro/TV3/8TV/TV9/ntv7 bergerak ke hadapan dan menarik lebih ramai pendengar, penonton dan pembaca.

3. Dalam dunia persuratkhabaran/TV dan dalam dunia kewartawanan, kita bukan saja perlu memikirkan cara mencari berita, terutama berita eksklusif, tetapi kita juga perlu berfikir bagaimana untuk meningkatkan jualan (memang ada sec dept), tapi kita boleh bantu.

4. Orang ramai perlu tahu bahawa kumpulan akhbar NSTP (NST/BH/Metro) sejak dulu lagi adalah menyokong dasar kerajaan, menyokong kerajaan. Dalam hal ini, pemerintahan Malaysia sekarang di bawah BN. Maka NSTP group menyokong kerajaan BN (kerana itu banyak saham NSTP dipegang oleh Umno). Jika suatu ketika nanti Malaysia diperintah oleh parti lain contohnya PAS, maka kumpulan NSTP akan menyokong kerajaan yang memerintah ketika itu. Pegangan saham tidak menjadi masalah kerana boleh dijual beli. Saya yakin jika PAS memerintah, parti itu tidak akan menutup operasi NSTP.

5. Kepada sesiapa pun yang akan naik dan turun dalam sesebuah organisasi, masing-masing kena ingat bahawa ini adalah rezeki anda. Sama ada Nuraina, Mior, Ashraf, Manja atau siapa saja anggaplah ini cabaran dan pengalaman anda. Naik turun adalah resam dunia.

6. Mior sepatutnya jadi GE ntv7, 8TV dan TV9, bukan GE BH kerana Mior lebih senior dan lebih layak jadi GE tv daripada Manja. Namun, terpulang kepada AAT dan 'kumpulan pemikir' untuk melaksanakan 'misi khas' ini. AAT dan 'kumpulan pemikir' tahu apakah 'misi khas' itu yang bukan saja untuk kemajuan syarikat, tetapi agama, bangsa dan negara.

Fikir-fikir lah yaaaaa Che Mat.

mana ada Group Editor untuk foto dept dalam nst sebelum si kamarudin yang popular teramat sangat ni?
setahu saya kamarudin adalah wakil hishamuddin aun jer dalam nstp foto unit, tetapi masih ada lagi ker? kalau ada lagi pasti jenis dua-alam yang memang bahaya. kalau buat KPI betul-betul memang layak untuk archive jer.
siapa-siapa yang berkenaan tu, kalau niat suci nak kembalikan suasana kerja berkeluarga, professional dan pentingkan prestasi itu memang wujud, sila laksanakan niat itu SEKARANG. lagi lama masa berlalu lagi parah foto unit kerana 'kepala' sekarang umpama bangkai.a
bangkai ni dah busuk sangat dan bau busuk itu sudah sampai ke merata-rata pelusuk syarikat ini.
en.zainul, kami harap encik dapat buat sesuatu yang kami di unit foto harapkan. kami perlukan seorang ketua yang professional dan layak menjadi ketua kami. kami pasti en.zainul tahu siapa yang layak.
maaf kerana terpaksa menggunakan forum en.rockybru kerana inilah satu-satunya ruang dimana kami rasa luahan kami dapat dibuat tanpa apa-apa sekatan, ugutan dan lain lain.
ramai yang menunggu en.zainul bertindak demi masa depan nstp.
