It seems even an exodus of money won’t quiet Kyle Sandilands? The enormous mouth of the kiwi radio personality has churned out some rubbish in it’s time. Sandilands was pulled from the air more than once in 2009 after one bad taste stunt turned into several absolutely shameful acts:  “Magda Szubanski would lose more weight in a concentration camp” and then of course there was the moral high Sandilands reached when a 14 year old girl who he’d had hooked up to a lie detector revealed she was raped when she was 12. Sandilands’ latest on-air rant against journalist Alison Stephenson will not likely get him permanently removed from any form of lens or microphone? It will cost Austero a pretty penny though!

On-air, Sandilands branded Ms Stephenson “a fat bitter thing”, a “fat slag” and a “little troll” after she wrote an article critical of his Seven Network TV show A Night With The Stars. Sandilands threatened to “hunt down” the news.com.au journalist.

While it’s little surprise that more high-profile companies are pulling advertising dollars from the Austereo network’s Kyle and Jackie O Show, it will however be a major surprise if Austereo’s lackluster management does much more than it’s usual 2 week suspension of the tiresome Sandilands. Having someone with moral fortitude or talent  has never been a focus for Austereo, a shock jock without a thought, seems to be the future of inane radio.

Even as the dollars exodus continues, it’s unlikely we’ll ever be rid of the ranting Sandilands, the math is pretty simple, his shock sells! READ MORE
