Newspapers are daily miracles. They start as a book of blank pages and turn into a living, breathing organism full of life, drama, colour, revelation, information and entertainment by the end of the day. No day is the same as the one before. Beyond the Newsroom is a collection of Geoff Kitney’s work covering more than 50 years of his career in journalism with newly-written reflections. It starts with the most intimate end of the newspaper business, small, local news, to metropolitan daily news, to national political affairs, and to the great canvass of the world beyond our shores. The majority of his career was spent as a correspondent, remote from the head office, reporting on such events as the Kosovo War. Geoff’s career spanned arguably the greatest era of Australian newspaper journalism. A career path that is almost impossible to contemplate now in the changed and rapidly transforming media world. He is one of a dying breed.
