The next Editor-in-Chief of Bernama

Retires later this month

Those who know seasoned journalist Datuk Yong Soo Heong know that beneath this gentle sumo is a fearless professional. His encounger with the "real" Lim Guan Eng back in 2008 remains one of my favourite tales when I am trying to prove that journlists' ethics are quite different from politcians' [I did it in good faith, 13 March 2008). Yong retires from Bernama at the end of this month as its General Mananger. As per the unique tradition at the national news agency, current Editor-in-Chief Zulkefli Saleh should move  up the ladder and fills Yong's shoes.  
Now, who will replace Zul as the head honcho of Bernama? Now that's very intersting at this time beacuse there is no clear favourite, I believe. There's Dr M's former press secretary Zack, National Press Club president Mokh, seasoned business journo Mike, among others. Or will they get someone from outside Bernama to try and boost the agency's fortunes?
