FAIRFAX MEDIA is throwing cold water on the reports that former Talk 2UE/SYDNEY star JOHN LAWS might come out of retirement to join crosstown BROADCAST OPERATIONS GROUP Talk 2SM/SYDNEY this year, with FAIRFAX's GRAHAM MOTT saying that LAWS has a non-compete agreement through DECEMBER.
MOTT told the DAILY TELEGRAPH's "SYDNEY CONFIDENTIAL" column, "He (LAWS) signed with us for 10 years in 2000 with an early retirement option, which he took in 2007, so he's unable to work anywhere else until DECEMBER when it expires. JOHN is obliged to comply with the terms of that agreement and we will enforce it." He also said that there is no room in the 2UE lineup for LAWS to return.
