Former 60 Minutes producer Stephen Rice has begun working freelance for Seven’s Sunday Night.
Rice was dismissed by Nine CEO Hugh Marks following the debacle in Lebanon, despite an internal network investigation recommending no individual be singled out. He subsequently hired lawyer John Laxon to represent him.
Ironically, it was Seven’s Sunday Night that then did a story criticising the whole sorry affair with Child Abduction Recovery agent Adam Whittington.
Sunday Night executive producer Hamish Thomson was also at Nine running Inside Story, when he turned down the Sally Faulkner story before it later landed at 60 Minutes.
