Akash Samaroo and Natalee Legore

The following is a statement by Guardian Media Limited on the issue now in the public domain about the hosts of The Morning Brew Natalee Legore and Akash Samaroo.

On the morning of Thursday January 7th a lively discussion took place between Morning Brew hosts Natalee Legore and Akash Samaroo relating to the insurrection on Capitol Hill involving Trump supporters.

The hosts had a very robust discussion during which they aired very strong differing views on the matter.

That is not unusual.

Differences of opinion are normal even when you are hosting a programme together.

While there was a very passionate exchange of ideas there was no acrimony involved.

What took place was reflective of the healthy debate that occurs when people have strong but differing views on an issue.

Unfortunately, the discussion has been blown out of proportion by supporters on both sides of the political divide with the narrative being spread that Natalee Legore has been fired by CNC3.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Ms. Legore remains in the employ of Guardian Media and continues to be one of the hosts of the Morning Brew.
