Fairfax Media has announced the end of its joint venture with Huff Post Australia, just two years after the launch of the online news and commentary web site by editor Tory Maguire. Maguire will leave HuffPost Australia as a result, as will CEO JJ Eastwood. It is understood that Fairfax may try to find jobs for some HuffPost Australia staff, but the majority are expected to lose their jobs. The end of the joint venture could impact on former "Today" host Lisa Wilkinson, who is HuffPost Australia’s editor-at-large, and who is understood to be on a six-figure annual deal.
