Australian Press Council new appointments
The Australian Press Council has made three new appointments and said farewell to a valued industry member, who has stepped down.
Simon King was nominated as an industry member by nine.com.au and appointed by the Council for a period of three years. Paul Merrill was nominated by Bauer Media Group and also appointed by the Council for a period of three years.
Dr Felicity-ann Lewis has been re-appointed as a public member for a further period of three years. Dr Lewis was first appointed to the Press Council in 2014.
Simon King is the Network Editor of nine.com.au. He has 20 years' experience working in media in Australia and Europe. Before moving to nine.com.au he worked at The Australian in various senior production and writing roles. He is the winner of the Australian Sports Commission’s Best Analysis of the Business of Sport, a Kennedy Award for online news breaking and a Voiceless Award for a feature in The Weekend Australian Magazine.
Paul Merrill has worked in publishing for 27 years, editing and launching monthly and weekly titles in the UK and Australia. He started in newspapers and local radio before editing Chat for IPC Media, where he also launched and published a series of specialist magazines. After winning the Magazine of the Year award, he was asked to launch Zoo Weekly for Emap and in 2006 he launched Zoo in Australia.
Dr Lewis retired in 2014 as Mayor of the City of Marion in suburban Adelaide, after holding the position since 2000. She was President of the South Australian Local Government Association from 2009-2011 and President of the Australian Local Government Association from 2012-14. She was the South Australian of the Year for 2014, previously a school teacher for more than twenty years and retired in 2016 from her role as a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Education, Humanities and Law at Flinders University, where she had worked since 2007.
Anita Quigley, who is stepping down as the member nominated by Community Newspapers Australia, served the Press Council with distinction since February 2016
"We will miss Anita's broad experience as a journalist and editor in our work at the Press Council," said Executive Director John Pender. "She was a staunch advocate for the community newspapers sector."
"I warmly welcome the two new industry members, Paul Merrill and Simon King, whose media experience is also broad and deep, and of course I am pleased that Felicity-ann Lewis will stay on for another three years and continue her excellent work for us."
At present, the Australian Press Council has two Vice-Chairs, acting in the role of Chair, and eight other public members, who have no affiliations with a media organisation. There are also 10 nominees of media organisation and four independent journalist members, who are not employed by a media organisation.
