The first casualties of the ownership change at Australia’s Nine Network have begun to emerge.
Creative services director Mia Freedman will ankle after just a year in the job. Freedman was appointed by former Nine topper Eddie McGuire, who also re-cently stepped down.
Freedman will not be replaced; her role will be absorbed by programming topper Michael Healy.
One of the shows she championed, daytime femme-skewed yakker “The Catch Up,” has been axed.
Nine parent PBL Media is owned by Blighty’s CVC Capital.
