On Wednesday June 3, the Melbourne Press Club is holding a lunchtime panel discussion featuring three journalists who’ve taken redundancy and discovered life beyond the metropolitan newsrooms. On the panel will be former Age business editor, Kirsty Simpson, former ABC journalist and Radio Australia host, Phil Kafcaloudes, and former News and Fairfax picture editor, Louise Graham, with the discussion to be hosted by the New Beats project’s co-founder Lawrie Zion.
The event will commence at 12:15 and will be held at Mr Hive Kitchen & Bar, which is at Level 1 of the Crown Metropol Hotel in Southbank, and the event will cost $40 for members, redundees and students, and $55 for everyone else. Bookings can be made via the Melbourne Press Club website or by calling 03 9614 2779.

See you there.
