Just not women’s cricket
Brantz claims, “Management told me that the cricketers refused to do the post-match interviews with me and only wanted to be interviewed by Mark Taylor and Ian Healy.”
But Cricket Australia’s, Peter Young, denied cricketers having a problem with her. “They don’t have gender concerns,” he told The Age.
Young said Cricket Australia encouraged broadcasters to include women journalists to lift the number of women watching the game.
Brantz says she was disappointed in being made to file reports on the Barmy Army and Lara Bingle, player Michael Clarke’s girlfriend. “I was embarrassed by what the role turned into compared to what was publicised prior to the event,” Brantz said.
Brantz’s removal follows Nine not renewing LA correspondent Christine Spiteri to its news team.
