Ola Michael describes McBrown as ungrateful
A colleague at Despite Media and Neat FM presenter Ola Michael even described McBrown's switch to Onua TV as a show of ingratitude and disloyalty.
According to Ola, if there was a Despite Media employee who had benefited so much from the benevolence of the company's owners and thus owed them loyalty and gratitude, it should have been McBrown.
McBrown reveals she had no contract with UTV
But speaking in an interview on 3FM on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, McBrown has debunked rumours that she left UTV without fulfilling her contract.
According to McBrown, she had no contract with UTV when she decided to join Media General.
She explained that she had told her previous employers that she wanted a break in December 2022 and a new direction for her.
The employers did not get back to her but they did not. Even when Onua TV contacted her in February, she did not accept it right away.
"I had this call, about early February, but I ignored it. I was thinking and praying about it. I wanted to be sure even though at that moment I didn't have much to do apart from my ambassadorial deals.
"...I had told my previous employers that I wanted to hold on from December for us to think about doing something else to do. I waited but I was not hearing from them. However, I don't have a contract with anybody so if nobody is minding me, I have the right to move on," she said.
