“It’s a disgrace”: George & Paul take aim at 2GB management
2GB Weekend Mornings hosts George Moore & Paul B Kidd have fired off a broadside at the station’s management for advertising a competitor show.
As reported by Radio Today, Macquarie Media has locked in veteran duo Roy & H.G. for a show on Saturdays during the Cricket World Cup.
Their new show on Macquarie Sports Radio kicked off on the weekend and runs until Mid July.
Macquarie has been advertising the show on its other stations including 2GB, so when George & Paul heard advertising for another show in their timeslot they weren’t too pleased.
They read out a message from a listener that said; “I think its poor form advertising Roy & HG who are on a different station, directly up against George & Paul. This is disrespectful,” said the message.
George & Paul said they “could not agree more” and called the decision a “disgrace”.
