    Aussies in Asia: The Thai island life of media man Tim Newton

    by  Peter Olszewski Featured in this week’s edition of mediaweek.com.au There’s also a tropical island buzz about the way Thaiger conducts its business What do you do if you’re a middle-aged entrepreneurial spirit, a self-confessed media junkie who’s put in 20 years in Australian radio, then invested in a Chinese boat-building business and went bust?
