Curtin breakfast host goes on massive rant

Peter Newman went on his breakfast show yesterday at Curtin FM in Perth and had a massive go at management after he received a letter from the Station Manager regarding an interview he conducted.

In the letter it outlined that listener complaints were received after Newman interviewed a former station newsreader. In the chat he asked if her 'boyfriend was good in bed'.

"This is clear intention by the station manager Quinn Glasson to dismiss my services," said Newman.

"It was a lighthearted remark when she referred to her boyfriend as the Italian Stallion and if people are offended by that I suspect they are of very delicate sensibilities," he said.

Newman then repeatedly aired the contact details for the station manager and PD and asked listeners to call direct and tell them what they think.

"I have no doubt that after 9 o'clock he will call me in and say that is unacceptable but I am candid, I am open, I tell my listeners what is happening I appreciate their point of view, I appreciate their judgement."

"I will not be judged by Quinn Glasson, judgement will be made by my listeners to Curtin FM 100.1."

The letter also said that it was the second time in a month he had been warned about his conduct on-air and off-air.
