Well, to answer your queries, we have made quick and exciting progress in a number of areas.

A new journalist comes on board

We are pleased to announce that Jonathon Hill has been employed as a full-time Scoop journalist. Jonathon attended the Wellington Journalism School in 1997 and was editor of Victoria University Student's Association Salient newspaper in 1998. Recently he has been working as a media officer for the Green Party. Jonathon can be contacted at

Jonathan brings the number of editorial staff on The Scoop in Wellington to four. Talks are well underway for a range of correspondents and columnists around New Zealand and internationally.

Scoop finds a home

The Scoop team has also found office space and is moving in this week. More details on this later in the week and watch out for a celebration early next week.

Services operational and more to come

Following a few hiccups last week NewsAgent is now running at peak efficiency. The search engine is also back online and new archive services will shortly be available to registered users.
