He told 2GB radio this morning he was very keen to remain involved with the network. He said James Packer was "a mate" and would continue doing business with him. It is understood he will continue presenting the quiz show he hosts on Monday nights. "It's business as usual as far as I'm concerned," he said. "It should not be seen as any kind of step back for the Nine Network," he said. He said the death of Kerry Packer left an "enormous hole" at the network. His resignation as CEO will take effect from June 30.
