    Steve Price says there is ‘no personal animosity’ between himself and 2GB host Ray Hadley after replacing the talkback king on regional radio

    Steve Price insists there is no bad blood between him and 2GB’s Ray Hadley after a deal saw him replace the talkback king on regional radio.

    The 66-year-old told The Daily Telegraph on Saturday: ‘There’s no personal animosity between stuff at all. I consider Ray to be one of the good guys left at 2GB.’

    The deal, which came into effect this week, saw Price – who moved to Southern Cross Austereo in 2019 – and his talk show take over The Ray Hadley Morning Show across Triple M’s regional networks.

    ‘So it may not be something that will sit that easily with him initially but Southern Cross made a business decision – they had a contract with Nine that expired on June 30 and they decided to put their own talent in that slot and that’s just the way it goes.’

    Daily Mail Australia has contact Nine Radio for comment.

    Earlier this year Ray married Sophie Baird, his former secretary.

    The pair married in an intimate ceremony at Saddles, a gourmet restaurant in Mount White, on Saturday, March 27.
