This is one of the more surprising news stories I’ve seen in a while…
Updated: TEN has denied a media report that CBS has ordered TEN’s news and presenting team to undergo voice coaching.
The Daily Telegraph reported seasoned professionals including Sandra Sully, Natarsha Belling, Hugh Riminton and Tim Bailey would all have to undergo coaching under orders from CBS.
An insider told TV Tonight voice coaching has been on-going for years but this time is mandatory for news staff.
A TEN spokesperson has since said, “Historically, we do annual voice coaching with a broad range of staff including journalists and presenters. This is not a directive from CBS.”
