BEN SAYS ‘NO’ TO JOB
He was tipped to replace Karl Stefanovic on the Today program, but Ben Fordham has dashed Nine executives hopes by turning down the lucrative job offer.
The former Today show’s sports anchor told The Sunday Telegraph that he is not willing to sacrifice quality time with his young children, Freddy and Pearl.
And speaking about Karl and fellow host Georgie Gardner’s lukewarm chemistry, Ben insisted, “They are doing an incredible job … and I can’t see that changing. I think Karl is made for Today.”
Looks like Karl gets to keep his job. For now…
Ben confirms he won’t be returning to Today. Below, with his young family.
