Ben Fordham breaks silence on “replacing” Karl Stefanovic

The former Today newsreader breaks his silence.

Ben Fordham has broken his silence regarding reports he was due to replace embattled Today Show host Karl Stefanovic. 

The 2GB radio host made it clear, however, that he has no interest in the prestigious morning gig. 

“I have no intentions of going back to Today,“Ben told The Daily Telegraph. “I had a great time on the show with Karl, Georgie [Gardner, co-host] and the team for many years but won’t be returning any time soon.”

The father-of-two added that he’s happy “waking up with his wife and kids”. 

“I wake up with Jodie, Freddy and Pearl and that will continue for a long, long time,” the former Today sports presenter said.
