Margadi on Eggers and Van Gelder’s bullying in NOS Sport: “You’re depriving me of my story”

The introduction again dealt with the insults and condescending comments she had to endure at sports editors. Especially negative experiences with presenters Tom Eggbers and Jack Van Gelder had a great effect on her.

“toxic climate”

According to Moragadi, they pretend they are not responsible for the satisfactory work climate on the NOS Sport working floor. “But you’re depriving me of my story and the hundreds of other people this happened to,” said Marghadi in Bo. She describes Eggers and Van Gelder as “pawns in a very large and dignified climate that is maintained”. “They say: the editors-in-chief should have intervened. I think: my friend, if you had acted, we would not have had to go through all this.”

Watch what she has to say about it in the clip below:

Marghadi was soon warned when she joined NOS Sport by recently resigned editor-in-chief Martin Nutter about Egbers, whom she wanted to ask as a mentor. “He said, ‘I don’t think that’s a good idea, Tom has problems with pretty women,'” Morgady said. “But I’m there myself,” said I. He slammed his fist on the table: that’s not going to happen!

She also told Morgady the story of what Jack Van Gelder said when she asked him over the phone to become her mentor. “He shared details of how he shaved his head,” she told Beau. “I thought, Isn’t that too much information? I’ve been trying to stay out of this bathroom all this time.”

When Morgady asked him if he wanted to be her tutor, Van Gelder joked if she wanted to come and sit in the bathroom with him. “A lot was going through my head at that moment. I wanted to respond quickly, but you didn’t know what to say. I’ve already heard stories about Jack. All I can say is: I’ll see you at work.”

Appeal: Teach children respect

Margadi calls on parents and educators to teach children respect and inclusion. Only in this way can a change be made that will ensure that the next generation no longer has to experience what they experienced on the working field at NOS Sport.

“It’s too late for me, my career is ruined,” said Marghadi. “But I hope my daughter and the new generation will not have to go through this.”
