Buzzfeed hire marks onset of Australia coverage

Buzzfeed begins its foray into Australia with the hiring of Simon Crerar: as the publication's Australia editor, Crerar is charged with overseeing its expansion to the "Land Down Under." Until he begins the gig in October, Crerar remains a visual story editor for News Corp Australia. "Appointed @BuzzFeed's Australia Editor: today was a VERY good day. Thank You and G'night!" he recently tweeted. "The @buzzfeed worldwide raid on News Corp continues at pace," tweeted Nico Hines of the Daily Beast, concluding, "Godspeed!"
