Radio host Byron Cooke responds to allegations former AFL star Brendan Fevola ‘bullied’ him on their Fox FM breakfast show

Byron Cooke has responded to claims he was ‘bullied’ by former AFL star Brendan Fevola on their Fox FM breakfast show.

Run out during a Q&A Byron Cooke Show podcast, one listener asked Byron if he felt badly treated by Brendan during the five years they worked together on the Fifi, Fev & Byron breakfast show.

“Fev and I are good friends and there is nothing I would intentionally remember Fev,” he explained.

“Fev has become a brother and brothers can be annoying and brothers can bully you so much that you want to throw a pillow at them or whatever.”

Byron added, “I’m not going to sit here and say there weren’t any mornings when he shut me down.”

“But beneath everything, it was and still is love.”

Byron announced that he would be leaving Melbourne radio station Fox FM in November last year to focus on his new podcast and spend more time with his family.

The radio host broke down in tears during live broadcasts when he informed listeners of his decision.

‘I’ve been here for a few years. I don’t know how to say this, but this is going to be my penultimate show with you guys, ”he began his discharge statement.

He added: ‘Starting next year, I will not be on the show. I’ve made the decision to move on to other challenges. This is actually quite difficult, but I will continue. ‘

Byron added that he’d struggled to get up every day at 4:30 a.m. for five years, and this schedule meant he couldn’t have done “ much else. ”

It’s just hard … It’s not because I don’t like to be, but I just can’t do seven things at once. This hasn’t been easy, ”he said in tears.

Byron has co-hosted the Melbourne breakfast show with Brendan and Fifi Box since 2017.
