The former TV3 News Anchor although was taken through a mock-run at Metro TV to takeover the anchoring of evening news amid publicity, trending and got social users talking.
However, reports suggest that the presidency and persons on the corridors of power are working hard behind the scene to get the veteran News Anchor booted out to minimise further criticism of the governing party.
