Amber has her say
In an article in Mumbrella, they have spoken to ex-Austereo Adelaide breakfast host, Amber Petty (pictured), who wanted to voice her opinion on the Bruno Bouchet incident.
In part she says that "behind the scenes much of the time it is 100% encouraged to be outrageous and have a sick sense of humour."
When she first started at SAFM, her death was faked in an on-air prank. Petty claims that she was pressured into doing the stunt.
“The obituary included our news reader reading out my death news and a sound grab from my brother and father saying how horrendous it was that I’d died, including asking my dad to say ‘It’s obviously always sad when a parent loses a child’.”
Rhys Holleran, Southern Cross Austereo CEO, responded to Petty's claims saying…
“At Southern Cross Austereo, we’re proud of our focus on recruiting and retaining the best talent, who thrive within our culture where respect, honesty and integrity are valued.”
Amber went on to tell Adelaide Now in a separate article that despite all this, "…there were many more great times spent at the company."
