Derek Fox shows how he got his nickname of “Derek The Fox” in this article in the NZ Herald where he claims his sudden resignation has nothing to do with the complaint against him by a female staff member, but because of attacks on Maori TV Service by MPs.
In the words of Tui – “yeah right”.
Fox has been handsomely rewarded for his work with MTS. The Govt promised as Chair he would get only $30,000 and instead he got over $100,000, and after hiring John Davy he then chaired the appointment panel which rejected all other applicants so he would be appointed CEO on a very well compensated salary.
If one is to believe Fox that his resignation is unrelated to the complaint, that is a shocking abandonment of MTS – bailing out before they are even on air and having pocketed several hundred thousand dollars.
