Tardio tees off
AS the year comes to a close, some it seems have scores to settle. Take 3AW’s veteran newsreader, TONY TARDIO, who has delivered the voicemail to end all voicemails to SEN’s Off The Bench crew of CRAIG HUTCHISON (below),
larrikin LIAM PICKERING and DR TURF.
A few moons back, Tardio and his 3AW colleagues reached out to Page 13 to try to put an end to the constant send-ups he was copping on the cult Saturday show.
Now, the baritone barker has fired back at the boys — with tongue firmly in cheek.
Before telling them to leave him “a-f---ing-lone” Tardio delivered some home truths.
“I was told Hutchy used to sleep in his car and lived out of his car for a while.
“Look at him now, he is a radio tycoon. But to every would-be tycoon I always say, don’t forget (deceased, disgraced media mogul)
Tardio called Pickering a “mid-range AFL champion and an even more mid-range cricketer” and suggested Dr Turf to be immortalised in a glass case next to Phar Lap.
For the record, when Hutchy was asked if he once slummed it in his car, Page 13 was told: “Ha, please, as if.”
