Seven has yet to issue a statement regarding Dolan’s well-being. But insiders say several factors may have contributed to his problematic behavior.

One suggested that Dolan might have struggled with the confronting nature of the wedding bus accident tragedy.

Dolan and his wife, Today Show producer Kendall Bora, are believed to have spent a long weekend at their $1.75 million villa in Berowra Waters, north of Sydney. One of the first reporters to arrive on the scene early Monday morning.

He broadcast live to the Channel Seven studio about a kilometer from the scene of the accident that killed 10 wedding guests.

“I think that kind of work might be too much for someone who is prone to emotional stress,” a Seven official told Daily Mail Australia.

“It will be traumatic for everyone, but especially for those who are particularly sensitive or struggling.”

In addition, Dolan was until recently seen as a possible replacement for retired Sunrise host David Koch. The role was instead given to Matt Shervington.

On the same day Sylvington debuted as a Sunrise anchor with Natalie Burr, Dolan was tasked with covering the bus accident.

“But no, not after the Adele debacle,” he added, referring to a harrowing interview with the Grammy-winning singer in which Dolan admitted he hadn’t listened to her album before the roundtable.

The British musician then walked out in anger, and the interview, which allegedly cost the network $1 million, never aired.

I reached out to Channel Seven for comment.

The incident comes just weeks after Dolan put his luxurious two-bedroom Bellevue Hill apartment for sale in Sydney’s posh suburb.

The house will be auctioned by Bressick Whitney on June 24 for an estimated price of $1.8 million.

Dolan, who started his career as a police reporter for the Herald Sun, joined Seven in 2017 after about eight years in the newsroom at Network Ten.

Two years later, he was promoted to his current role as co-host of Weekend Sunrise alongside Monique Wright after intermittently filling in for weekday host David Koch.
