Cordell has been NM‘s editor for seven years, publisher for four years, and has done important reportage on West Papua, Timor-Leste, and social justice issues. She has supported coauthor and collaborator Ben Eltham’s national affairs reportage.
In her final editorial Cordell thanked NM‘s team, contributors, and readers. I would also like to thank Cordell: being an editor and publisher is a rewarding yet demanding job that requires significant behind-the-scenes investment of expertise, time, money, mentoring, and risk-taking. Each editor brings their own unique style and vision to the publication they edit – Cordell has strengthened Australian independent journalism.
Cordell announced NM‘s new editor is journalist Chris Graham. Cordell joins Australia’s Crikey as an editor.
