Statement From TV3 & Clint Brown

TV3 confirmed today that it has accepted the resignation of its Sports Presenter, Clint Brown.

“We wish to acknowledge Clint’s significant skills as a sports broadcaster, and thank him for his 17 years of very loyal service to TV3. Clint Brown is a passionate New Zealand sports fan, and he has been at the forefront of some of New Zealand’s biggest sporting moments,” said TV Works Chief Operating Officer, Rick Friesen.

“Sadly, Clint has been the victim of an horrific violent assault which resulted in hospitalisation,” said Mr Friesen.

“However, TV3 is not satisfied that racial remarks attributed to Clint by some media were made by him,” he said.

“We will celebrate Clint’s 17 years of service to TV3 with an appropriate send off,” Mr Friesen said.

Clint Brown said: “the last month or so has been enormously stressful for me and my family. I am pleased that the investigation into my violent assault has clarified what was and was not said. As a family we have decided that it is now time for a change. All that is left to say is thanks to TV3 for 17 great years and to the loyal viewers over that time.”

TV3 wishes Clint well for his future endeavours.
