One of the more illuminating media websites belongs
to Greg Tingle, a self-styled media entrepreneur who
runs the public relations agency and news portal Mediaman. Tingle is clearly a man of many talents,
describing himself as "a Sydney-based public
and media relations consultant, celebrity property
developer, publicist and promoter, TV presenter, journalist,
radio broadcaster, internet author, and an all-round
media entrepreneur and man of business brilliance".
Is there anything he can't do? According to his online
biography, Tingle's big break came when he phoned
2UE's John Laws and chatted on-air with the Golden
Tonsils himself in 2000. This media man about town
is also a budding author and finishing his book, Don't
Bulls--- a Bulls----er - From Newport Boy to Media
Man. His motto? "I say things others might think,
but are afraid to say."
