Macquarie Media Chairman threatens Alan Jones with the sack

Sunday 18 August, 2019
Macquarie Chairman, Russell Tate
Facing the prospect of an exodus of advertisers, Macquarie Media Chairman, Russell Tate, yesterday, sent out a media release:

On Thursday on his 2GB and 4BC breakfast show, Alan Jones made certain comments in respect of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, which caused offence to many people.

Recognising the offence caused by his remarks, Alan on Friday publicly apologised for them.
In his apology, Alan recognised that his comments were “careless, unnecessary and wrong”, and”. He indicated that he had apologised sincerely to Prime Minister Ardern for any offence given, and had certainly not intended to suggest any harm through his comments.
Notwithstanding his apologies, I have today discussed the matter with Alan and advised him that any recurrence of commentary of this nature will result in the termination of his contract.
Russell Tate
