The person responsible for the now infamous leak of the ‘Jacketgate’ spat between Nine news presenters Amber Sherlock and Julie Snook has been revealed.
While Nine has said they were looking into the incident – after footage was distributed of an off-air tiff between the two ladies over their similar white wardrobe – The Daily Telegraph has revealed that the person responsible for the leak is said to be an on-air talent and will not be fired for their actions.
‘The editor who originally sent the clip around the newsroom got off pretty easily because they didn’t intend it to get out,’ an insider said.
‘But originally they were saying once the (culprit) … was found, they would be reprimanded and potentially fired.
‘As the person is on air, they are limited in what they can do.’
A Channel 9 spokeswoman has refused to comment on the investigation or its findings.
