Late last month we issued two press releases which criticised and questioned radio 2GB broadcaster Ray Hadley.
In particular it was suggested that Mr Hadley had a financial stake in greyhound racing and an association with a person banned as a trainer.
We now know and acknowledge that Ray Hadley has had no interest in any greyhound for many years. He has no greyhounds nor any personal interest in the industry.
Our suggestions to the contrary were based on unreliable and wrong information and we expressly apologise for those errors and suggestions that his broadcasts were motivated by self-interest. We have already withdrawn all suggestions of any involvement by Mr Hadley in animal cruelty and corruption and again express our regret for those false assertions.
It is pleasing to note that although Mr Hadley opposes the total shutdown of the greyhound industry, he shares our abhorrence of the disgraceful conduct of some in that industry which has recently been exposed.
