Kyle Sandiland Suspended From Austereo

Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O have been suspended from their breakfast radio program on Today FM, because of a lie detector segment which showed incredibly bad judgement as well as bad taste.

The Daily Telegraph says the pair are suspended, but also it states that Kyle is unable to go on air. What does that mean that he is curled up in the foetal position in the corner of his ski chalet in New Zealand? Or is it away of saving face?

Anyway The Punch have been quick off the mark and have provided some analysis of this story with an article by editor David Penberthy on how people power and the web took Kyle off the air and Paul Colgan saying Kyle will be off air for at least a week.

Australian Idol will now have to decide whether to stick with him. See previous post on this issue here.

A turn around from Austereo. Fair that Jackie O also suspended but a week really? Should be permanent in my view.

I cannot see them making it permanent as they are the highest rating FM breakfast program, if they sack them some other station will grab them.

I should add I have never listened to them, as they have never appealed

Actually, it appears Austereo have done nothing. Kyle’s pulled himself off the air, perhaps to be seen to be doing something contrite to save his C10 work?

I think you’re right. There’ll be a short break and then they’ll be back unfortunately. This pair have never appealed to me either. She’s insipid and pretty much dependent on him for her career and he’s just vile. Have you seen the near naked photos of him and his wife on the website? Tasteful.

Optus have now pulled sponsorship.

I think its ridiculous that a mother would put her daughter up to the radio thing. Knowing full well her daughter had been raped, and did nothing about it. With the repercutions focused only on the radio hosts. Its just absolutely discusting to ruin peoples radio and tv careers just to get tickets for a show.
