NOS journalist Tom Egbers bullied a much younger colleague after an affair, and editor-in-chief turned him away from pretty women

NOS journalist Tom Egbers bullied a much younger colleague after an affair, and editor-in-chief turned him away from pretty women

The newspaper spoke to 32 witnesses, such as Aisha Marghadi, who worked as an intern for the sports editor at NOS. “Marghadi feels that people are suspicious of her,” said the article, which was posted online on Friday evening. “She wants a tutor, Tom Eggers. It’s not going to happen: Eggers did promise, but editor-in-chief Martin Nutter backs out. He didn’t think it was a good idea, and after he insisted he said why not.” Tom had difficulty with pretty women, he said. He said Tom had had problems in the editorial office in the past. He didn’t go into details, but he was firm. “It’s not going to happen,” she says.

Margadi was also the woman who called Jack Van Gelder when he was in the bathroom, the show host himself announced Thursday. “Great story. Then she asked if I wanted to be her mentor. And then I’d make the comment, ‘If you want to join me in the shower, that’s fine.’ Well, that’s a joke to me. Turns out that hit her hard.” Margadi was also going to discuss this incident with Notre. According to De Volkskrant, “He looked at me and said, ‘Yes, this is Jack.'”

relationship with the trainee

Egbers’ name has appeared several times. At the end of 2009, for example, there was also a 22-year-old intern who reported to the editor-in-chief. Eggers (48 at the time) had contacted her, attacking her with texts, emails, and phone calls. According to De Volkskrant, the woman, who continued to work for NOS Sport after her internship, eventually accepted Egbers’ advances at seduction. “They kissed several times, and that was what the editor-in-chief says.”

However, after the relationship ended, Eggers would bully the woman. In front of several colleagues, he was called “the axis of evil”, “the poison” and “the serpent”. According to the newspaper, he also indicated that he slaughtered one of them when she passed by. According to De Volkskrant, the NOS editor-in-chief also promised to speak to Egbers, but “nothing has changed”.

Igbers: “We regret what happened at that time”

In a response to the article, Egebers said “he regrets what happened at that time”, and “looks at things differently”. According to the journalist, he himself reported the affair to his employer, and now regrets it “because it caused him grief in his private life.” “Looking back after all these years, the fact that she was in her 20s and I’m in my 40s is also very important to me.”

The NOS Sport editors did not want to respond objectively to the article or to specific questions from De Volkskrant about their witness stories. “As an employer, unfortunately, we can never make statements about (former) employees, their performance, and any incidents between employees themselves due to privacy,” it appears in response. The general picture that de Volkskrant paints is painful. Unfortunately, the sounds seen here have not reached all of us. So we take care of that. It shows once again that there is real work to be done, and that what happened in the past must not happen again,” said managing director Gerard Timmer.
