Tim Burrowes is the award-winning founder of Mumbrella. Working on newspapers, magazines and online, he has been a journalist for more than 30 years and has worked in the UK, Middle East and Australia. Tim is a recognised commentator on media issues and has a regular newspaper review slot on ABC TV's News Breakfast program. Tim launched Mumbrella in 2008 after identifying an opportunity to disrupt the media industry's two traditional print titles with an analytically-led, digital-only product. In the decade since its launch, Mumbrella has become one of the most respected authorities on the Australian media and marketing landscape. In 2017 Mumbrella was sold for a reported $8m to the US-owned Diversified Communications. As Mumbrella's editor-at-large, Tim writes its popular Best of the Week email newsletter, the media industry's most read piece of weekly analysis.
'The media industry is the most exciting, colourful and crazy in Australia and Media Unmade is a white-knuckle ride through the newsrooms, backrooms and boardrooms that have been battered by the global storms of disruption. With a pantheon of big personalities making even bigger gambles, Tim Burrowes has brought to light the legendary tales and seismic moments of the last decade in a fearless, forensic and often funny way. And, most importantly, he has made peace with Harto.' - Joe Hildebrand 'Media Unmade is a ripping tale of Semtex, whiplash and tears. We were galvanised and digitised and right-sized and pulverised. I'm still traumatised. Tim Burrowes is a canny narrator. He did not waste his front row seats on this insane ride.' - Joe Aston 'This book fizzes with sexy detail.' - Stephen Brook, Sydney Morning Herald 'This book fizzes with sexy detail.' -- Stephen Brook * Sydney Morning Herald *
