Studio 10 EP sacked after 'breakdown'. Ten's Studio 10 executive producer has been booted by the network. Rob McKnight sent an email to staff yesterday saying he wouldn't "spin a BS line that I resigned". In the email, reported by TV Tonight, McKnight said he had worked himself into the ground:

I always knew my passion would be my downfall and today that day has come ... When Adam Boland broke down, I was working 15 hours a day to keep Wake Up and Studio 10 on air. The pace has always kept up but I believe I have given my all. Recently, I was very close to a breakdown (let's be honest, I was going through a breakdown) which led to my four weeks off. While that was a good opportunity to recharge, the ongoing pace of our under resourced show has shown the strains once again. Unfortunately, I am not TEN material. I have been informed my services are no longer required.
