Terribly wet journalist gets material (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

tweed

Here is my best explanation:

'material' is the definition.

(tweed is a kind of material)

'terribly wet journalist' is the subsidiary indication.

'terribly' indicates an anagram.

'journalist' becomes 'ed' (**).

'wet' anagrammed gives 'twe'.

'twe'+'ed'='tweed'

'gets' is the link.

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for tweed that I've seen before include "See 7", "River on border between England and Scotland", "Flow", "flows across a border", "Twilled cloth", "rough stuff", "Rough material", "Woollen material", "Flower on border" and "woollen material".)
