Kerry Packer is NOT turning in his grave, 60 Minutes tells viewers

Kerry Packer may have been dead for 11 years, but Nine’s Peter Overton still knows what he thinks.

And Overton was happy to inform viewers of 60 Minutes that the dead billionaire is still right behind the show, presumably despite the unfortunate Beirut mishap.

Tackling the show’s postbag segment, Overton took on viewer Jed Duncan who messaged the show that “Kerry Packer would be turning in his grave to see what you lot at 60 Minutes have done to a once respected network.”

Not so, explained Overton, telling the viewer that not only would Packer have been a fan of the segment he was criticising, but would also like the next one too.

So to be clear: Kerry Packer is NOT turning in his grave.

Dr Mumbo can only salute Overton for keeping in touch with the big man’s changing tastes in an increasingly disrupted media world.
