Media circles have been buzzing since a video was leaked yesterday showing Nine News Now host Amber Sherlock berating fellow journalist Julie Snook for wearing a similar coloured white top to her.
The exchange happened off-air prior to the two broadcasting a live chat with psychologist Sandy Rae, who also happened to be wearing a white top.
Sherlock looked far from impressed as she passive aggressively told Snook several times that she had asked her “two and a half hours ago” to wear a jacket or change her top prior to the broadcast.
To say things got awkward between the two work colleagues while there guest in a separate studio was visible squirming in her chair.
Watch the whole awkward exchange here.
Heard has now been quoted in a statement that:
“News is a fast moving environment and sometimes these things happen.”
Now the Daily Telegraph claims that the culprit has been found by Channel 9 bosses who are now considering what action to take.
TV newsrooms are a notoriously tough working environment with ego and ambition leading to countless stories of backstabbing and fighting between colleagues.
The most recent example to make headlines was the spat between Samantha Armytage and Chris Bath who reportedly couldn’t stand to be in the same room together, resulting in producers coordinating their movements in the Channel 7 building so the two would avoid crossing paths.
Armytage even reportedly refereed to her nemesis as ‘Bath Vader’
It will be interesting to see what the motives were in releasing the video and how this will impact newsrooms around the country
