Back in 2016, we wrote about a Radar Radio presenter who was made to sign a non-disclosure agreement promising never to mention Sports Direct on air (Radar Radio is run by the son of the company’s CEO, Mike Ashley, and gets most of its funding from daddy’s contentious cash cow).
Some Radar personalities got a little shirty with us after we published that, saying they had never heard of anyone at the station signing an NDA (although, in fairness, that is sort of the point of them).
So we noted with some interest that the station has suspended broadcast this week, following allegations of a ‘toxic’ working atmosphere there. Presenters had tried to speak out about sexual harassment of employees – and how did the station choose to deal with the situation initially? Why, by trying to get them to sign NDAs, of course!
