Former broadcaster and hero to poorly opinionated sports fans Tony Veitch has been discovered to have been living rough in inner city Auckland. It appears Veitch has fallen on hard times since his departure from Newstalk ZB late last year.
Thai Castle found him rummaging through a bin on K Rd, where he admitted: “Yeah, it’s not the best situation, is it? But this is just temporary until everyone forgets that, you know, thing I did.” Veitch’s ventures into broadcasting since his axing from Newstalk have been a string of failures, and his once-popular Facebook page has become a ghost town of terrible, uniformed opinions.
“My bosses at Newstalk realised that those Facebook number don’t actually mean jack-shit in terms of making money, which is why I got the boot I think. Oh yeah, and thing I did.” Veitch told us. As well as sleeping rough, Veitch has been earning a meager income exchanging sexual favours for money.
However, he admits that business is slow. “No one loves Veitchy anymore boys. Thoughts?”
