Channel 7 reporter Matt Doran was suspended for two weeks by the network after admitting during his interview with the “Easy on Me” singer that he hadn’t listened to the album, according to reports.

The Weekend Sunrise host flew to London early in November for the interview, but during the conversation, reportedly didn’t ask any questions about her new album.

When Adele: “What do you think of my album?” he replied: “I haven’t listened to it.”

Some sources say Adele walked out of the interview at that point, while others said the interview was already over by that point.

While some source said the singer walked out on the interview after the comment, other sources said the interview was already over at that point, the Daily Mail reported.

He was back on air over the weekend after his suspension was finished.

Although the interview was recorded, Adele’s label Sony has reportedly denied Channel 7 rights to air any portion of it.

On Sunday night (November 21), the TV host told The Australian he was never “formally” suspended despite being off the air for one weekend.

He said he had been sent an e-copy of the new album but “somehow missed” it while flying to London. He called it “the most important email I have ever missed”.

“When I sat down to interview Adele, I was totally unaware that I’d been emailed a preview of her unreleased album,” he said.

“I have since discovered it was sent to me as an ‘e card’ link, which I somehow missed upon landing in London. It was an oversight but NOT a deliberate snub. This is the most important email I have ever missed.”

He said he heard “Easy On Me,” “but not the other tracks.”

He also denied claims he never spoke about the album: “What was meant to be 20 minutes was extended to 29 minutes. The majority of the chat was about the album,” he insisted.

It was also just revealed that Adele got Spotify to make a huge change to their interface.
