Veitch To Step Down While Allegations Considered


Sports Presenter Tony Veitch has agreed to step down from his role with TVNZ while media allegations are considered by the broadcaster.

Head of News & Current Affairs Anthony Flannery said that Mr Veitch would step down while a review was conducted into the allegations made against him by some media organisations.

Mr Flannery said there were complex issues, particularly the privacy of others, to consider.

He said because of the nature of the matter it was inappropriate to make further comment.
