‘Don’ Ben Fordham pardons Bodge for past sins against 2GB
Hit Mid North Coast’s Jason ‘Bodge’ Bodger has found himself on the bad side of several 2GB hosts in recent years, but all was forgiven this week as new 2GB ‘Don’ Ben Fordham gave him an official pardon.
It all started after one of his listeners claimed that he was invited to compete on Australian Ninja Warrior last year, hosted by Fordham, but that he was never given a second chance due to time constraints (though other contestants were allowed a second shot).
A few conflicting views came out, as Fordham addressed the rumours on his Drive show. Now that he’s on Breakfast, Bodge spoke to him to see if he could smooth things over at 2GB (where the Hit Network host has been on the naughty list since slagging off Alan Jones).
“You’re the first 2GB presenter that I’ve had on that I haven’t irritated fully,” Bodge told Fordham. “Ray don’t like me anymore, because I made a pop at Alan Jones.”
“If you’ve gotten in trouble with Ray Hadley you’re in a club, I’ve been in the same club and it’s a rather large club,” laughed Fordham.
“You are part of the family… and if you’re part of the family, you’re gonna be okay.”
