Primedia Broadcasting is investigating allegations of gross misconduct

Primedia Broadcasting is investigating allegations of gross misconduct against an executive in the Primedia Broadcasting division. On becoming aware of the allegations, we immediately initiated an investigation into the matter, that is being led by an external expert. We are also providing ongoing support to the affected individuals and broader staff.

While at an early stage of the investigation, we are very concerned at what has been alleged, and have therefore placed the individual on special leave pending the outcome of the investigation. We cannot prejudge the outcome of the investigation, but we have taken swift action to ensure that it is managed quickly and decisively.

At Primedia Broadcasting, our core values are to conduct ourselves with honesty, integrity and transparency. We build trust through open communication, which promotes dignity, respect and compassion. These allegations are diametrically opposed to the culture of our organisation, and we treat them with the utmost level of seriousness.
