The news that Lebanese TV presenter George Kurdahi is resigning from the MBC Group is widespread, although sources from the channel deny the news.

The relations between Geogre and MBC Group turned sour after he publicly announced his support for the Syrian regime. In a statement, he said there was a conspiracy against the Syrian government from Arab TV stations.

His show Enta Tistahil (You Deserve It), which was supposed to have been aired during Ramadan, was canceled after the remarks went public.

The group announced that the station’s programs in the upcoming two months would not include Kurdahi.

Sources close to Kurdahi said the TV presenter joined the newly established TV station Mayadeen.
