Veteran journalist Peter Ford has also been dropped from FIVEaa following Jeremy Cordeaux out the door after comments made about Brittany Higgins on Saturday morning’s breakfast show.
Ford says he was a guest on the show, and while he had made a reference to Ms Higgins as being “admirable”, in the conversation that followed “…comments were made that I didn’t and don’t subscribe to. Whilst I defend (Jeremy’s) right to ask questions and take a stand I did think the words used to do that were crude and disrespectful.”
