Today Tonight Anna Coren
CHANNEL 7 will wave goodbye to Today, Tonight host, Anna Coren if she wants to pursue a career overseas, as there is no room for her in its bureaux.
Coren will continue contract re-negotiations on her return from Beijing after already completing a screen test for CNN at its Atlanta headquarters in July. But the man she will negotiate with – Seven news and current affairs boss Peter Meakin _ is prepared to let her go, reports media writer Marcus Casey.
“I have left her alone at the Games but we’ll have a talk when she gets back to see what she wants to do,” Meakin said yesterday. “She’s been open in telling us she would like to spend time overseas, and that is her right. “But I don’t think it would be with us – she has been talking to CNN and to be honest, overseas positions are limited at Seven.”
Coren was called back from Seven’s Los Angeles bureau to host Today Tonight when Naomi Robson quit in November 2006. She has topped the ratings since, but her stint in the Today Tonight hot-seat has not escaped controversy. Coren was lampooned weekly by ABC pranksters The Chaser last year and was part of Seven’s losing team in the Mercedes Corby defamation case, which cost Seven an estimated $5 million. Meakin said he didn’t think Coren would want to return to reporting – even if it was overseas.
“Anyway, our bureau positions are filled by Adrian Brown, Mike Amor, and Rahni Sadler,” Meakin said. “It would be good if she stayed, but it is not compulsory for her to work at Channel 7.” Coren was unavailable for comment yesterday but recently told The Daily Telegraph she wanted to “explore my options like any normal person coming to the tail-end of my contract.”
