Howard Sattler launches legal action against 6PR
Howard Sattler has launched legal action against former employer 6PR.
The veteran announcer was sacked by the Perth radio station after an interview with former Prime Minister Julia Gillard in which he questioned the sexuality of her partner Tim Mathieson.
Sattler has launched defamation proceedings against 6PR claiming unquantified damages due to the unlawfully termination of his employment. He also has a separate action alleging unfair dismissal.
The interview in question went to air on 6PR just over a year ago and the station issued an apology to Gillard and Mathieson.
