Friday’s revelation that beloved sports broadcaster Bruce McAvaney had been diagnosed with leukaemia not only shocked and moved sports fans across Australia, it also caused quite a bit of tension in the Seven newsroom.
Allegations made by a former employee of misconduct by the Seven West Media (“SWM”) CEO, Tim Worner, were released to the media in late December 2016 (the "Statement"). Given the seriousness of the allegations involved the Board sought that an urgent and thorough independent review be conducted. These are the findings of the review given to the SWM board.
The Seven Network has announced details for an expanded coverage of the 2017 Australian Open Tennis, including a new subscription service that will provide fans access to HD coverage online.
