The program was funded by CPA Australia[1] and featured its controversial then-CEO Alex Malley[2] interviewing leaders from the world of politics, business and entertainment.[3]

CancellationEdit

The TV show was abruptly cancelled in 2017 when Malley was fired as CPA Australia's CEO and stripped of his lifetime membership.

Malley's termination followed a dispute with CPA members over his $1.7m salary[4] as well as the use of CPA funds to produce and promote In Conversation with Alex Malley and otherwise build Malley's personal profile.[5]

A report published following Malley's departure revealed that CPA paid Channel Nine $4.16 million to broadcast the program as well as spending another $1.2 million to advertise the program on billboards.[6]

All mentions of the TV show were removed from CPA's website within days of Malley's termination.[7]
