‘On behalf of Triple M, we would like to thank Wayne for his services to our football commentary team, and we wish him the best for the future,’ Cameron told .
Carey’s future with Channel Seven as an expert commentator remains clouded.
The two-time premiership winner reached an agreement with Seven under which he would stand down until the WA Police investigation is completed.
On Tuesday, WA Police stated their investigation into the matter was ongoing.
Carey also chose not to file his weekly column to The Age, with the newspaper to review its columnists at the end of the AFL season.
The ex-Kangaroos star has since asked why police were not called if he had done something wrong.
‘On two occasions they had an opportunity to call police,’ he said.’If what was alleged had happened, then police should have been called straight away.
‘They had another opportunity when I went up to my room to call police and they never called the police.’

‘I thought, you know what, the easy decision would have been to curl up in a ball,’ Carey told the crowd at the function put on by a group called the Good Blokes Society.
‘To curl up in a ball and stay in Melbourne and not be seen for a little while.
‘And then my missus [Jessica Paulke] said to me, ‘You actually haven’t done anything wrong, You haven’t been charged.You’re not going to jail.’
Carey added Paulke had told him to ‘walk tall’ and he was grateful for บาคาร่า her advice.
But the fallen star is anything but a good bloke in eyes of many footy fans.
Carey, described his sexual liaison with a teammate’s wife in 2002 as ‘the biggest regret of my life as an adult’ while appearing on SAS Australia this year
Carey played 272 games and booted 727 goals in a glittering AFL career that saw him named an All-Australian seven times

Most notably he had a sexual liaison with Kangaroos vice captain Anthony Stevens’ wife Kelli in a bathroom in 2002.
Carey has previously assaulted police trying to arrest him in Australia and the United States.
The man they call ‘Duck’ also admitted having previously abused cocaine and alcohol.
The retired footballer has revealed he may sue Crown after he was issued a two-year ban – and he has retained the services of Josh Bornstein from Maurice Blackburn Lawyers.
Bornstein is said to be investigating a possible ‘disability discrimination claim’ against the gaming giant, and stated Carey was ejected under the ‘assumption that the bag contained an illegal drug.’
‘Mr Carey is prescribed anti-inflammatories and pain killing medicine to help manage the significant pain caused by debilitating football injuries – including a shoulder that needs replacing and a neck injury that requires three discs to be replaced,’ Mr Bornstein said.
