Triple M has sacked Barry Hall after a controversial on-air comment.
The former Sydney Swans premiership player caused outrage with a vulgar comment about a former player’s pregnant wife while talking to St Kilda legend Leigh Montagna.
The comment was regarding a technique used by medical professionals, known as a ‘membrane sweep’, which Montagna’s wife Erinn underwent to induce labour.
“Tonight on Triple M Football, there were unacceptable and inappropriate comments made by a member of the commentary team,” network head of content Mike Fitzpatrick said in a statement.
“The commentator was removed immediately from the broadcast and an apology was issued on air afterwards.
“Immediate action was taken with the termination of employment for one team member.”
