Controversial talk host John Tamihere says he is suing Mediaworks over his departure from Radio Live.

The former Labour MP and co-host Willie Jackson were stood down by the station last month amidst a public outcry over the way they interviewed Amy, a caller who identified herself as a friend of a victim of the Roast Busters rape club.

Mr Jackson is to return next year with a new co-host, Television New Zealand presenter Alison Mau, but Mr Tamihere’s contract was not renewed.

He told Radio Waatea this morning he won’t be going quietly.

"I’m telling you this morning I will be litigating again with Mediaworks very shortly so you can read all the salacious bits in the affidavits and in the emails but whenever I go anywhere I will go on my own terms, won’t go on anyone else’s terms. It’s interesting too at Mediaworks, it’s a sisterhood running it and I’m just writing up my affidavit now and reflecting on it, it’s amazing, it’s back to the future with Helen and co," Mr Tamihere says.
