[Keyword: , ]. Jeff Jarvis has been speaking to Ed Roussel, head of online for the Telegraph, "about the paper-site’s scoop last night on the hiring of BBC Chairman Michael Grade by struggling ITV", providing an insight into the workings of the newly integrated newspaper:
"Roussel said the Grade story was a model for how it should work on a new
platform that can cut across all media and tools: The story went online at 9:50

competitors listed above to attribute the news to the Telegraph. Roussel said
there is no more debate about putting stories online first. "
