6150...Is The PM's Husband Gay?

Asking that question will cost you yer job.  Just ask [former] drive time talker on Perth, Australia's 6PR, Howard Sattler.   Thursday he asked Prime Minister Julia Gillard on air if her marriage to hairdresser Tim Mathieson was romantic or platonic.  Mr. Sattler also repeatedly asked if Mr. Mathieson was gay.  Enough already said his bosses at 6PR.  They cashiered the talker and offered up this statement as an explaination.

Statement regarding Howard Sattler.

During an interview on the Drive program yesterday presenter Howard Sattler pursued a line of questioning with Prime Minister Julia Gillard that was disrespectful to the office and the person of the Prime Minister and was entirely inappropriate.

Radio 6PR apologises unreservedly to Ms Gillard and Mr Mathieson for allowing these matters to be raised on the Drive Program.

In the wake of yesterday's interview Radio 6PR suspended Mr Sattler from broadcasting pending a review of the matter today. The station has now decided to terminate Mr Sattler's engagement.
