Bill Ralston faces the axe?

TVNZ news boss Bill Ralston is being restructured out of his job and is set to be one of the 150 to 200 casualties in a revamp planned for March.

The company-wide review comes as the organisation faces big changes, including the establishment of two new digital free-to-air channels and the launch of a website offering TV show downloads from March.

One of the two new digital channels will screen 24-hour news, so Ralston’s present job (and that of his deputy Steve Rowe) may be lost. Other jobs are also under review.
