Ben Fordham is the new Karl!
Warm and friendly 2GB radio host Ben Fordham is without a doubt the frontrunner to replace Karl on Today, despite his recent denial that he considers himself a candidate. An insider says the story was “masterminded” by Nine to see how much the public like him. “And the feedback has been overwhelmingly in Ben’s favour,” he says. The fact Karl wasn’t included in the lengthy 60 Minutes Hall of Fame package during the Logies did nothing to inspire confidence in n his standing at Nine. The network is also understood t to have indefinitely shelved This Time Next Year, h hosted by Karl, despite filming half the episodes for a s second season. “I think everyone is watching carefully t to see how the second series of Australian Ninja W Warrior – with Ben again hosting – performs.”
Ben and Georgie make a great team.
