Dumped Channel Seven personality Melissa Doyle refuses to dish the dirt on her former colleagues in her upcoming book

Melissa Doyle has vowed not to expose her former Channel Seven colleagues in her upcoming book.

In an interview with News Corp, as reported by the Herald Sun on Friday, the 50-year-old said she had no intention of turning her book into a media industry tell-all.

The interview came just hours after it was announced Melissa would be leaving the network after 25 years.

Explaining that it was ‘not my style’ to dish the dirt, the former Sunrise host admitted she was still trying to process her departure from Seven.

‘To be frank, I’m just trying to enjoy today, enjoy the moment and see what comes next,’ she added. 

‘I figure I’m not the sort of person that sits still. I’m not the sort to sit back and wait for things to come my way. I’m proactive, I’m always working on other projects.’

The TV journalist had nothing but positive things to say about her former colleagues, who she said ‘made me better’.

She admitted she was feeling ‘overwhelmed’ by the messages her friends and colleagues had sent her after her departure was announced on Friday morning.

And while she was appreciative of her time at the network, Melissa admitted she also ‘sad’ to be leaving.

‘I’ll be really honest, I’m a little sad because it’s been half of my life. I feel like I’m part of the furniture,’ she confessed.

Although Melissa is determined to remain tight-lipped on her former colleagues, fellow TV host Lisa Wilkinson is reportedly happy to discuss her departure from Channel Nine’s Today after 10 years on the breakfast show.

According to a report by The Weekend Australian earlier this month, the 60-year-old ‘is expected to address’ her exit from the network in her memoir to be released next year.
