Talitha Cum­mins is set to make her TV re­turn on Stu­dio 10 today, af­ter set­tling her law­suit for un­fair dis­missal against for­mer em­ploy­ers at Seven ear­lier this month. The for­mer news­reader chal­lenged Chan­nel 7 af­ter she claims it ended her reg­u­lar gig on Week­end Sun­rise while on ma­ter­nity leave, just nine weeks af­ter the birth of her first child. The con­fi­den­tial set­tle­ment cleared one le­gal drama for Seven, cur­rently em­broiled in two civil cases with for­mer em­ploy­ees in the NSW Supreme Court, in­clud­ing the nasty and pro­longed bat­tle with Am­ber Har­ri­son, the exmistress of CEO Tim Worner. Cum­mins, who will join Sarah Harris, Joe Hilde­brand, Jo Casa­mento and Susie Elel­man on the Chan­nel 10 morn­ing show, said she was “very ex­cited to be back on TV” for the guest gig. “The brain’s a bit rusty, but I’ll be in the safe hands of the great Stu­dio 10 crew. Con­ver­sa­tions with my eight eight-month-old­month are very one-sided, s so I do hope they’ll pu pull me into line.” Ex­ec­u­tiv Ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer R Rob McKnight wel­comed Cum­mins to the show, revealing:rev “Talit “Talitha and Sarah are old mates­mate and we all th think she’s great tal­ent. She’s a per­fect fit fo for Stu­dio 10 as sh she’s not afr afraid to openope up aboutabo her per­son­alper life and hasha strong opin­ion­sop on hotho top­ics.”
