Rod “Mr T” Tiley Signs Off
On Sunday Rod Tiley signed off for the final time at 6PR Perth, after a radio career spanning four decades.
Rod was diagnosed with liver cancer in October 2015 and sadly after intensive treatment he confirmed on-air that it is a battle he has not been able to win.
Rod has been in the business since 1973 with his first gig at 4AM in Mareeba, North Queensland. Over the years Rod has worked as a Music Jock, Journalist, Sports Commentator, News Director and News Talk Presenter, with the Brisbane market being his home for many years including 4IP and FM104 (now Triple M). “Mr T” joined 6PR in 2011 as News Director and in recent times has been on weekends with Sue McDougall.
Rod has also mentored and supported many in the industry over the years and we wish Rod and his family all the best for the days ahead.
Here’s Rod’s farewell with Sue McDougall and Bob Maumill on 6PR.
