A recent reshuffle at Nine’s Sydney newsroom which has seen Ian Cook installed as Director of News over John Choufiate is creating headaches for Nine.
Choufiate is believed to have quit yesterday.
According to the Daily Telegraph a Nine spokesperson said, “the Network is in discussions with John and those discussions are continuing.” According to industry buzz, “he’s going and not quietly.”
Choufiate is believed to have seconded the same legal team as Mark Llewellyn, former Nine News boss whose affadavit infamously catapulted the word “boned” into the Australian vernacular.
Choufiate is said to be “open to offers.”
