Primedia Broadcasting clarifies facts

Primedia Broadcasting has noted the references on social media (many from a former employee of Primedia Broadcasting who left the organization in 2015) to the situation concerning a senior executive at Primedia Broadcasting. Despite our transparent communication on this issue, there continues to be misinformation about the actions Primedia has taken, and we wanted to take this opportunity to clarify the facts.

Last Tuesday, 13 February, three complaints were received from staff members regarding a senior executive’s inappropriate behaviour at a staff function. Contrary to the reports on social media, this was the first time such allegations were raised - the claim that the complaint was raised a year ago is completely untrue. On becoming aware of the allegations, we immediately initiated an investigation into the matter, led by external legal counsel. The external expert concluded its investigation on Monday 19 February. The charges were presented to the Executive in question on the same day, and he resigned shortly thereafter.

Primedia acted quickly and decisively in dealing with this matter. We will continue to render all support required to our staff.
