Catherine Deveny takes new swipe at ‘jealous’ Age


COMEDIAN Catherine Deveny has taken another swipe at management of her former employer The Age, saying they sacked her because they were jealous of her high profile.

“I was never sacked for what I said on Twitter,” Deveny told a Melbourne Writers Festival audience.

She added senior management were “furious” at the attention she was attracting on radio, in comments on The Age’s website and in appearances on programs such as ABC1’s Q&A, which “they see as yardsticks of their success”.
