Sattler dispute with 6PR settled

Another Fairfax station is in the news this week, 6PR.

Howard Sattler has reached a confidential settlement with his former employer after being sacked in July 2013.

The former 6PR morning announcer was sacked for his line of questioning to former Prime Minister Julia Gillard, asking if her partner Tim was gay. See our earlier report.

Sattler was seeking damages of $500,000 for the six months left of his contract. The details of the settlement were not made public.

6PR released a statement saying:

“Today we reached a confidential ​settlement with Howard Sattler regarding his claims against Radio 6PR. We are pleased ​the matter is now settled and wish Howard ​all ​the best.​ We won’t be commenting any further.​”
