SUVA (Fiji Broadcasting Corporation/Pacific Media Centre/Pacific Media Watch): Australian Brian O'Flaherty is the new general manager of The Fiji Times newspaper.

FBC News has been reliably informed that O'Flaherty is expected to resume duties on Monday, replacing Dallas Swinstead.

O'Flaherty is a former News Ltd employee and was publisher of the Fiji Times in the mid-1990s.

After leaving Fiji, O'Flaherty is understood to have joined News Ltd's Cumberland newspapers.

News Ltd sold the Fiji Times last year to the Motibhai Group of companies after a Media Decree directive that all media organisations have 90 percent local ownership.
