She e-mailed staff after Thomas Rabe, Bertelsmann's chief financial officer, said that Five was "not sustainable". Airey referred to comments by Gerhard Zeiler, the RTL chief executive, who said: "We remain as committed to Five as we have been during the last 12 years." Airey said: "You can't get clearer than that."
