Replace Phillip Sametz on ABC Classic FM Breakfast

Phillip Sametz told a listener that if he didn't like what he was doing he could find another station. He then later tried to embarrass the listener even more on air.

This wasn't just someone having a bad day. I was told the ABC received numerous complaints and spoke with him, but he made no on-air apology.

His double entendres, constant references to alcohol, and supercilious comments are inappropriate for a morning show.

In contrast to Sametz's incessant stand-up comedy and catchphrases rather than information about the music, Russell Torrance has the inclusive, fresh, knowledgable approach of the previous breakfast presenters

Russell has now been chosen to host Weekend Breakfast after Colin Fox having been a steadfast presence there. Please join me in asking that the ABC show respect for its listeners, including suggestible young ones, and replace Sametz with a professional, good-natured presenter.
