Grant Denyer may be backing Amanda Keller for the Gold Logie but the suggestion that he is annoyed with Tom Gleeson is in stark contrast to what he said last year.
A year ago he acknowledged people power in helping him to a win.
“Tom Gleeson where are you?” he asked the Logies room.
“Thanks for the Hard Chat mate, I appreciate it.
“Sometimes if you need to get things done in this country you need an angry redhead. Pauline Hanson wasn’t available so I had you, mate. Thank you so much.”
This week he was backing Amanda Keller (fair enough) but also took aim at Gleeson’s campaign telling News Corp, “I’m worried if he wins, that’s it for the Logies forever.”
On the 2Day FM breakfast show yesterday, Denyer also criticised Gleeson for hijacking his Gold Logie campaign.
“He (Gleeson) jumped on at the 11th hour and basically took over my campaign,” Denyer said. “I didn’t ask him to, I didn’t really want him to, but I had no choice in that.
“Everybody in the country now thinks I won the award because of him, and if I’m honest, that shits me.”
He also appeared on Hard Chat just last week.
