Erin Molan has made a disturbing claim about her time at the Nine Network, alleging that one of the bosses openly rated her physical appearance.
The shocking story was shared during a fiery chat with controversial Married At First Sight contestant Harrison Boon on 2DAY FM’s Hughesy, Ed & Erin this morning.
After grilling the 32-year-old Sydney tradie about his behaviour on the show, Molan was given the opportunity to “rate” his attractiveness out of 10, when she dropped the bombshell claim.
“Can I just say Harrison, when I was at Channel Nine for ten years, one of the bosses there told somebody that they rated me an eight (out of 10), because I was ‘hot, but not too hot that I’d intimidate other women to the point where they wouldn’t want to watch me’,” she said on-air.
“I thought it was appalling, I was really annoyed.”
News.com.au has reached out to Nine for comment.
During her decade-long career at Nine, Molan co-hosted The Footy Show, the Sunday NRL Footy Show, and anchored the sport coverage on Nine News.
However, in late 2021, the TV presenter announced that she was jumping ship to rival station Sky News Australia to take on the role of Primetime Contributor, appearing on a wide range of programs.
Last October, Molan opened up to Mamamia about how she handles being the spotlight, admitting she no longer looks at any articles about herself.
“I will not read a word about myself, whether it’s good or bad, it doesn’t matter,” she revealed, adding that she’d made the decision after reading everything in the first few years of her career.
“I can’t read the good and buy into it or read the bad and feel horrible,” she said. “So, if I know I’m featuring in the news for a particular reason, I don’t look at it. [And] if I see one article, I won’t go to any other site for 24 hours.”
