The News Man
1 journaler for this copy...
‘You’ll never be journalist’s bootlace!’ During his apprenticeship in the early 1960s, Mal Walden heard these words frequently from his news editor and media mentor, John Maher. Walden not only proved his mentor wrong, he went on to become the longest-serving newsman on Australian television. From a career starting in local radio, Walden went on to TV as news anchor for channels 7 and 10. Each year he maintained a journal in which he recorded his many serendipitous and life-changing moments. These memories form a record - not only of his life as a newsman, but of the evolution of television news, which is now in its sixtieth year and facing what many proclaim is the imminent ‘death of news’ in all its traditional forms. This is the story behind the news stories we think we knew about. It offers exclusive insights and behind-the-scenes access to some of the biggest new headlines of our time.
