2HD’s Richard King: “Did that go to air, did it?”

Former Publisher

Oops. 2HD breakfast presenter Richard King left his microphone turned on during a weather update last week, say sources.

The end result was over 90 seconds of cringe radio.

In a live cross to the local Williamtown Bureau of Meteorology just after 6am, King unknowingly interrupted BOM rep Carter by repeating the weatherman’s forecast and mocking his foreign accent live on-air.

“Oh, very very good,” King said with an Indian accent over the top of Carter’s forecast.

The audio, sent to Radio Today under anonymity, appears to be lifted from King’s show last Thursday.
After King’s first embarrassing interruption and with his microphone still switched on, King is heard asking, “Did that go to air?”
As Carter attempted to maintain his professionalism and push through the weather update, King can again be heard in the background laughing and asking his producer, “Did that go to air, did it?”

King has been contacted for comment but did not immediately respond.

Cringe radio alright , Its about time the tired old man hung up his microphone and went home to do his washing. sick of hearing his boring voice.
Dave Sutherland has been doing an amazing job over the Christmas break, his voice is like a breath of fresh air, he should be on air more often, listen to his show and see for yourself.
I’m sure more young people listen to 2HD when Dave Sutherland is on air.

Wow – So a clearly ‘racist’ comment went unpunished – yet Carallis crucified Marcus Paul.

So that ok to go to Air , Richard King was not taken off.
What a two faced Radio Station 2SM is.
To Mr Carallis by sacking Marcus Paul I hope you regret it as MARCUS was the best Radio Announcer you had since losing Grant Goldman and IF you had done the right thing and kept him he would of been very happy to stay for many years to come and after all he grew 2SM listeners better than anyone he was as good if not better than John Laws and how long do you think he will be there, FOREVER. I don’t think so.
If this Station Management had a heart you would bring Marcus Paul BACK.

John Laws is great, hopefully he will be around for many years

Marcus Paul was awful, glad he has gone, so rude

Enjoying Richard King.
