Listen to Alan Jones’ final break on 2GB Sydney breakfast
After 35 years atop the Sydney ratings, broadcaster Alan Jones has called time.
On his final show today, Jones thanked his “radio family”, including listeners, station staffers, and the network’s legal team: “I’ve driven them nuts, I’m sure.”
“Let me begin by saying the obvious, the program is about listeners,” Jones said in his final hour 2GB Sydney. “Without them, there is no reason to be here.”
Jones confirmed he would be “retiring from radio” earlier this month, on doctors’ orders, marking the end of a 35-year career behind the microphone.
Shortly after his on-air resignation, Nine confirmed drive host Ben Fordham would replace the shock jock on 2GB, with Fordham labelling the challenge “a huge responsibility”.
Following 226 survey wins, Jones waved goodbye with a poem from Robert Lee Sharpe.
