Re-launch and subsequent turbulence

City 7 TV was relaunched in 2007,with new programmes and a new name. However,signs of troubles begin emerging in December 2007 when the then CEO resigned, seeking a "different environment". In October 2008, the channel's 130 staff members were not paid their wages for that month. In a candid,televised interview broadcast on City 7, owner Mohidin Bin Hendi said City 7 must be "proactive". While he stated he wouldn't sell out the channel although he might consider it if it's the right offer by the right person.[1]. The staff were then paid their regular wages.
