Radio host Michael Laws is unlikely to return to air for at least the rest of this week while discussions are held over his comments for journalists to be shot.

The broadcaster has been called a "dick" by Mediaworks stablemate and TV3 head of news and current affairs Mark Jennings.

"I disagree with Laws' comment and for him to talk about integrity sounds a bit rich," Jennings said. At the TV3 newsroom "we all think he is a bit of a dick," he said.
