‘He was extremely unhappy’: Beau Ryan, 33, reportedly quit his own radio show on Macquarie because ‘the money was rubbish’, according to the Daily Telegraph
“The money was rubbish and it was not paid for at market value,” the source told the publication and accused management of making a “low-cost offer.”
The comedian would get paid more to replace Kyle and contribute to celebrity segments and then he got paid on Macquarie Sports Radio.
On the show, he hosted alongside John Stanley, but it looks like Mark Riddell has taken over as host.

Beau would have been on a continuous contract without obligation, KIIS FM denying having “poached” him.
Earlier this week, Radio today reported that speculation is mounting. A 33-year-old man could be scheduled for his own show on KIIS FM.
The former sports star also replaced Kyle Sandilands on KIIS FM’s much-loved Kyle & Jackie O, while the shock jock was absent.
Fancy a new role? It was reported earlier this week that Beau may be scheduled for his own show on KIIS FM, in an unconfirmed report.
This isn’t the first time Beau has covered Kyle in a high-profile radio spot.
The father-of-two also took over the radio veteran’s microphone in March of this year when Kyle was on sick leave.
Beau later told Daily Mail Australia in April that it was a gig he “really enjoyed”, admitting he wouldn’t necessarily turn down a radio job.
The Footy Show star has never been afraid to venture out to try new things.
In addition to excelling as an NRL player, playing for both the Sharks and the Tigers, Beau had made quite a career on the small screen.
He also competed in the Australian Ninja Warrior last year, but bombed from the start of the competition.
Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Beau Ryan and Macquarie Media for comment on this story.
