Channel 4 News presenter Krishnan Guru-Murthy has been taken off air for a week. In a statement, the broadcaster said:
Channel 4 has a strict code of conduct for all its employees, including its programming teams and on-air presenters, and takes any breaches seriously. Following an off-air incident Channel 4 News anchor Krishnan Guru-Murthy has been taken off air for a week.
Mr. Guru-Murthy tweeted that he had apologised to Steve Baker after using “a very offensive word” about him following an interview.
The minister in the Northern Ireland Department responded by accepting the apology.
The news anchor will not return to the airwaves before 4th November as he already had a week of leave planned.
