2GB’s ‘irreplaceable’ Alan Jones easily replaced in the ratings by Ben Fordham

Four months after Alan Jones left breakfast radio his replacement at 2GB has proved just as strong as the former king of radio in the key slot, shattering the myth that he was irreplaceable.

Now in his new headline role at Sky News Jones is playing second fiddle to fellow rightwingers Andrew Bolt, Peta Credlin and Paul Murray.

Since he began his new gig on Sky After Dark the Alan Jones show consistently finishes behind the other personalities. The days of being number one are over.
