Sandilands, Jackie O To Return From Suspension At 2Day FM/Sydney
August 14, 2009 at 4:43 AM (PT)
AUSTEREO Top 40 2DAY FM/SYDNEY's KYLE SANDILANDS and JACKIE O will return to the air TUESDAY (8/18) after being suspended for the now-infamous JULY 29th "rape interrogation." AUSTEREO has instituted a seven-second delay on the show but indicated that the company supports the hosts and will allow them to return to the air
SANDILANDS and JACKIE O were suspended AUGUST 3rd after the airing of the segment, in which the girl, strapped to a fake polygraph, responded to a question about sex by saying, "Oh, okay, I got raped when I was 12 years old." SANDILANDS followed up by asking the girl if the rape was "the only experience you've had." Besides the suspension, SANDILANDS also lost his position as a judge on the TEN NETWORK's "AUSTRALIAN IDOL."
