Tar­dio tees off

Herald Sun - - NEWS -

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)

ROBERT MAXWELL.”

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.”
