"Gordon's strengths as a highly regarded journalist are well known. In terms of Scoop he has been a mainstay of almost all of its original content in recent years.

"He is extremely well placed to bring about a new direction and higher profile for the overall quality of content on the site, and its capacity to offer a spectrum of voices on issues of the day."
"Gordon has the full backing of the board and will initially be focusing his energies on developing a team of editorial contributors to enrich Scoop's scope and increase its readership," said Pellett.

"A well planned approach will reinforce Scoop's established presence as a leading home for independent journalism and the aggregation of media statements. These are changes that will gather pace through the remainder of 2014".
