With the appointments of Tom Malone and Greg Byrnes, will Macquarie Media be overturning the defamation insurance decision that led to George Moore not renewing his contract with 2GB?
Of all the presenters on this station, based on his history of more than forty years on air, George Moore would have to be one of the least likely to attract legal action for defamation. And his consistently high weekend mornings ratings (with Paul B. Kidd) surely demand that he be retained if at all possible.
An opportunity for the new leadership team at Macquarie Media to make an immediate impact.

Fully agree with Tim Williams. My sentiments were reflected earlier in paragraphs 5 and 6 at https://radioinfo.com.au/news/exclusive-why-i-quit-macradio-george-moore . I have never heard George Moore utter anything defamatory. I fully agree with Mr Williams that the 40+ year veteran broadcaster George Moore would be "....the least likely to attract legal action for defamation...."

I also fully agree with Mr Willams that with consistent high ratings that George Moore "...be retained if at all possible...."

Under contract law there has to be a meeting of the minds. The question is will the new management be able to recruit George Moore back to MML. Alternatively will George Moore want to return back to MML.

Thank you,
Anthony of up-beat Belfield
