Cos Cardone, Head of Entertainment, is to go. Cordone had a background in sports but has been in charge of the ailing The Nation. He was a “right-hand man” to Eddie McGuire, whose role as CEO ended this week.
Another executive, Gary Fenton, is taking a package which sees him continue in a consulting role. Fenton has been instrumental in Nine’s sports acquisitions including the World Swimming Championships.
Cardone’s removal will shift all focus to the future of The Nation, as if it wasn’t there already. How on earth can it sustain another troubled week?
