Why did Merrick and Rosso end their bromance? Kate Ritchie or station suits to blame?

Merrick and Rosso: Behind the Bromance Break-Up

More details are coming out regarding Tim Ross’s departure from Nova last week. According to reports, Nova management had been secretly looking for a high-profile personality to join the team. When word got back to Rosso that they were shopping around, he decided to call an emergency meeting. That’s when things got heated and Rosso decided to walk. He'll still continue to work with long-term on-air partner Merrick Watts in some capacity because they have set up a production company together, but last week Rove and sidekick Peter Helliar were spotted dining with Merrick, which led to speculation that the pair might be replacing Rosso. Meanwhile, according to The Sun-Herald, there was another factor in the split – Kate “Yoko Ono” Ritchie. What do you think? Did Sally Fletcher break up the boys or were Merrick and station management trying to edge him out?
