Companies suspend advertising with RadioLive

By Harata Brown

RadioLive talkback hosts Willie Jackson and John Tamihere arrived at studio today for their last show for the week. Their question line in a recent interview about the Roast Busters continues to shock and has resulted in companies pulling their advertising from the show, and in some instances, from the entire station.

The Roast Busters haven't yet been charged for their online boasting about having sex with underage teenage girls.

The conversation between Willie Jackson and John Tamihere live on air on Tuesday has angered many people.

Nearly 10 clients have withdrawn their advertising contracts with RadioLive. Just recently also, the station publicly apologised for any offence and distress caused to listeners. The Willie and John Tamihere talkback show will remain commercial free until November 15.
