THE Seven Network on Thursday terminated the employment of rugby league reporter Josh Massoud.
Massoud was suspended on May 1 after threatening to “slit” the throat and “...t down” the neck of a 22-yearold cub reporter who had mistakenly broken an embargo on one of Massoud’s stories.
Insiders said Seven successfully averted Massoud’s attempts to extract a six-figure payment from the company.
“He left with just normal entitlements,” a source said.
Confidential phoned Massoud for comment, but he did not respond prior to deadline.
