There are even more chapters in the scandal engulfing Seven CEO Tim Worner and the Seven West Media Board today.
Most alarmingly, Fairfax reports a website has named two high-profile women who were allegedly linked to Worner. All have been denied by Seven.
The website failed to respond to a court order that the offending material be removed by 8pm Thursday night. The matter will head to the Supreme Court today. But any full Defamation suit could likely necessitate Worner and Amber Harrison giving evidence.
The Daily Telegraph outlines some of the expenses Harrison allegedly accrued on company credit cards: flights, hotels and flowers.
The Herald Sun predicts the Board will be forced to act suggesting “boards can’t resist the shareholder and public pressure and they have to act.”
The Australian weighs in with unrelated speculation of an executive “exodus” in Perth. Rumours Perth boss Chris Wharton had left Seven have been clarified as long service leave by the network. It also speculates on just who will be quizzed by the inquiry announced yesterday and whether Nine should return a volley with a current affair report, after Sunday Night interviewed Adam Whittington over 60 Minutes?
Yesterday Seven confirmed the Board had met 4 times this week following Harrison’s statement while Tim Worner apologised to staff and acknowledged elements of culture could be improved to ensure a safe and ethical workplace.
