Former Senator Sam Dastyari will this week make his commercial radio debut by hosting the segment Beijing Today on The Kyle & Jackie O Show.
“The week that I lost my job as a Senator I was down, pretty low and as for job prospects I was scraping the bottom of the barrel,” said Mr Dastyari. “Well lucky for Me when I reached the bottom of the barrel who should I find there but Kyle Sandilands and we got chatting and I have a spot on his show. Everything is coming up Dastyari.”
When asked why would a commercial radio have a segment titled Beijing Today Senator Dastyari replied: “In the circles I move in everyone wants to know what’s happening in China and Canberra and everywhere. And let’s face it Facebook analytics can only tell us so much.”
Kyle Sandilands said of his new recruit: “I like to surround Myself with the lowest of the low so Sam or Dasher as I like to call him will fit in well with Myself and Intern Pete. Now if you’ll excuse me I need to go and buy batteries for my lie detector. I’m giving a talk this week at my local high school and I’m going to need it.”
