Mas­soud gone

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

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.
