7:30 set to air fresh bullying claims from a former senior radio executive perhaps tonight

7:30 has remnained tight-lipped about when it will air the program.

2GB morning presenter Ray Hadley remains under fire as a growing number of past employees, and at least one current, emerge as victims of his acid tongue. 
 
It is believed that on tonight’s 7:30 program on ABC TV, a very senior manager will recount his past experiences with Hadley. This follows last Wednesday’s 15 minute, 43 sec segment that covered bullying accusations from former staff members, Chris Bowen, Jesse Perez and Andrew Moore.
 
Over the weekend The Daily Telegraph posted a story from former NRL star turned sports commentator John Gibbs who had kept silent for decades about the way he was treated by Hadley while they worked together at 2UE.
 
As tough as they came on the football field, Gibbs saw no other way out of the constant harassment than to quit his job.  In an excerpt from his 1998 letter of resignation to 2UE management, published by the Tele, Gibbs wrote of the psychological battleground in the radio station’s sports department. 

“I am treated like a dog, verbally abused and told I’m a failure on air,” he wrote.

There was also a report that was published in both the Fairfax media and the Nine News site (which now own MacRadio) that an unnamed, senior, long serving manager has lodged a formal complaint with his bosses about bullying that took place just last year. This appears to contradict Hadley’s claims that this recent spate of accusations is all old news and that he has apologised to staff and has since mended his ways.

If you’ve been bullied in the workplace by anyone at your station, email Peter Saxon in strictest confidence. peter@radioinfo.com.au
