Rex Hunt unleashes on a 3AW executive during his last program

The reason for Rex Hunt’s departure from 3AW may well lie in the result of an onair rant delivered in his last program on the station.
Incensed at a phone call he received from a station executive about a missed ad break, during an interview with Robert DiPierdomenico, that ran over its allotted time slot, Hunt unleashed, screaming at the executive “…don’t ring during my program, got it?”

In a note to staff, Station Manager, Stephen Beers said, “Rex Hunt has advised us that he is sadly taking leave of his duties at 3AW to focus on his family. 
As much as he has loved his return to 3AW and we have loved having him on Footy Nightline, we wish him well for the future.
“Rex knows the door is always open for him.”
