‘Was someone out to get me? I don’t know’: Nine boss says relationship forced resignation

Outgoing Nine Entertainment Co chief executive Hugh Marks has conceded his relationship with former subordinate Alexi Baker worried some of the media company’s directors, and he described recent board meetings as occasionally lacking "calmness".
The 54-year-old executive announced his resignation on Saturday afternoon amid persistent speculation and reporting about his personal life. Mr Marks split from his wife late last year and told The Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday that he was in a relationship with Ms Baker, who reported to him as managing director of commercial before quitting on October 1.
