Ray Hadley abuse was recorded
The widely reported story last week of Ray Hadleys 'on and off again' suspension has become slightly murkier over the last 24 hours.
It has been revealed the 2GB staff member who was verbally abused by Hadley, 29 year old Richard Palmer (pictured), recorded the incident on his iPhone.
Subsequently, he played the recording to Managing Director Rob Loewenthal who was reportedly 'disgusted' by Hadley's behaviour, resulting in his suspension.
History will now show that Loewenthal was over-ruled by Macquarie Radio's majority shareholder, John Singleton, who ordered that Hadley be returned to the air.
Hadley was angry as he felt a podcast of his show was not uploaded swiftly enough to the station website, resulting in his verbal confrontation with Palmer, who is 2GB's Digital Content Manager.
Richard Palmer has at this time not returned to work.
