It was billed as the Eagle FM mini Day Out – a big deal for the youth of the NSW regional town of Goulburn with performances from a bunch of local acts along with triple j Unearthed talent People’s Palace and Reality TV stars Lachlan Cosgrove, Altiyan Childs and the X-Factor’s Tyrone Georgiardis.
The show was on March 30 but Georgiardis and a local photographer had remained unpaid according to The Goulburn Post. Georgiardis manager told the paper his young client was out of pocket, travelling to the venue at his own expense to perform four songs and demanded the $800 fee promised by the recently departed Eagle FM PD Dene Broadbelt.
The station claims that it was not their event despite it being branded as such on air and in promotional material. Broadbelt disputes this.
Nonetheless, late Tuesday afternoon, station manager Gail Bowdern agreed to settle the accounts by close of business that day.
She also told the Post that Mr Broadbelt’s employment was terminated on Monday afternoon but couldn’t comment on the reason. Broadbelt disputes this too saying he resigned due to family issues.
