Hinch signs up to weekly 2GB role

Broadcaster Derryn Hinch – who was sacked by Melbourne’s 3AW late last year – is to become a weekly contributor to 2GB’s Ben Fordham show.

The announcement:

(Wednesday, April 10, 2013) Following on from yesterday’s ratings victory, 2GB has announced that Derryn Hinch will join the team as a weekly contributor on Sydney Live with Ben Fordham from 3pm today.

Derryn congratulated Ben on his sixth survey win yesterday and said he was excited to join Sydney’s number one radio station.

“It’s an honour and a privilege to be joining 2GB Drive and working with a successful media personality like Ben Fordham. I look forward to our Wednesday jousts.

“In a way, I’m coming home. I started my radio career with 2GB and the Macquarie Network covering the blast off of Apollo 11 from Cape Kennedy in 1969,” said Hinch.
