Following the shocking resignation of CEO Marcel Golding on Monday - part of a deliberate move by Hosken Consolidated Investment (HCI) shareholders to push him out and his resultant shocking revelations of political interference into e.tv's eNews and eNCA operations - I'm told e.tv is trying to calm the chaos.
"e.tv's group attorney just arrived in Cape Town today to try and calm people," I'm told by a source.
"Patrick [Conroy, managing director of eNCA and eSat news services] also flew to Cape Town," an insider tells me.
"People are just wondering whether there will be a Christmas party for the staff this year. And if there is one, who will be addressing them this year?" says another one.
