2SM breakfast presenter Marcus Paul sacked

2SM’s Marcus Paul has been sacked.

The talk radio host was suspended last week after an inappropriate reference to the tragic death of a school girl in a news quiz.

He subsequently apologised for the “completely inappropriate” news quiz question, which mentioned alleged murder victim Charlise Mutten.

On his Facebook page Paul said “I am moving on … Starting with the freedom to be able to defend both my integrity and professionalism.”

Material about his show has been removed from the 2SM website.

Before joining 2SM, Marcus Paul worked as a senior journalist at i98 FM and a presenter at 2CC Canberra.

A petition to reinstate him has been initiated by Jordan Shanks, who was a regular commentator on the show.
