Radio Jock ‘Suspended’ Over Dreamworld Comment
An Australian radio host has reportedly been suspended after making an inappropriate remark about the Dreamworld tragedy on air.
Breakfast presenter Anna Dare made the comment during a ‘secret sound’ competition segment on 7hofm in Hobart.
After her co-host played the ‘secret sound’ clip, Dare said she “didn’t like [the sound], it’s violent-sounding”.
“It’s not breaking a leg bone with a sledgehammer, is it?” her co-host said.
“…It’s not getting stuck in a conveyor belt at a theme park, is it?” Dare said, before asking if it was “too soon”.
After a few seconds of silence, Dare continued.
“That’s what it sounds like to me, when I first heard it!”
“I don’t like it, it’s a yucky sound.”
