The other on that show carry him

He sounds like a 10 year old. I find it quite sad. 

But he has certainly ripped the place apart. 

To me Breakfast radio is the heart of the place. Get that right and the rest follows

Hutchison has made a mistake there. 

But, SEN is a niche market so time will tell

The picture of Hutchison in todays HUN on page 17 makes me want to vomit profusely. 

His wage is $883,752 a year!!

I expect nothing less from such a class act. 

To sack radio people en masse weeks before christmas is just downright low. 

Contracts are usually finalized around August/Sept for the following year...

hope he is sued by all and sundry

SEN is owned by an ASX listed company. The Board of Directors is accountable to its shareholders and made what they presumably think is the right decision to merge with Crocmedia and install Hutchison as CEO. If the changes Hutchison makes don't work the Board would expect him to fix them and if he doesn't or can't shareholders would expect the Board to change the CEO. And if they don't the shareholders would likely change the Board. 

Keeping on air and off air people employed just because they are "good blokes" isn't the way to run a business. And neither is not paying people what they are owed. If Schwarz and Allen are owed money, they need to be paid. I would be very surprised, though, if employment lawyers weren't consulted by SEN before the terminations happened.

i'm sure if hutchy got the flick his contract would ensure a nice golden handshake. as for the mug punters who bought shares....well that would be a different story........but it is nice to see you have such confidence in public company corporate governance and the machinations of the stock exchange and shareholders' rights

Of course, my opinion would be completely different if we were talking about the big four banks!

If you don't like the management don't buy the shares. Simples.

That's true for small shareholders. But fund managers with large holdings (for example, more than 10% of the company's shares which would, on today's valuation of Pacific Star Network, be worth over $3 million) might have enough clout to get changes made and may prefer to do that than sell.

That's exactly what they have done. The board selects the CEO. The Board of PSN clearly wanted change and installed Hutchy to make the changes. Aside from the personal toll on employees - which is clearly an issue - they are within their rights to do such a thing.

I previously listened to KB on every morning. I rarely listed to any other shows on SEN other than Mark Allen's golf show early Sunday morning and Rodney Malcolm Hogg at 1pm Tuesday arvo (cricket season)  Have switched off completely. The amount of ads seems to have increased. Not sure about calling a show 'Whateley'.

Well the station needs ads without ads there is no radio station, unlike THE ABC which has public funds, so if you only want the ABC to be the only station calling football then put up with the ADs

I certainly won’t be listening to SEN

Hutchison can go f himself. 

For him to keep his own drivel on air Saturday morning, whilst getting rid of Mark Fine, The Ox, Matt Granlin just shows his own ego is the main benefactor. 

I will observe from a distance with interest

At least Stephen J Peake has been booted. 

That is one positive!

The most recent radio ratings are out. Herald Sun is reporting that while Garry Lyon and Tim Watson increased their ratings, the newer appointments  (Whately, Andy Maher, KB and Dr Turf) all went backwards compared with the last ratings period for the same timeslots. Keep in mind that SEN traditionally has a seasonal shift (improvement) when the footy season is in full swing and possibly even during the draft and trade periods which might have helped the last ratings period.

And because we've had some great headlines in this thread, following recent events in Washington:

Sadly I’m no longer in the headline writing business, but if anyone wants to use “Tyrant is sore at Rex” today, they are welcome to it.
