Fordham preps for breakfast at Alan's home studio during his week off

Monday 25 May, 2020
Ben Fordham, Alan Jones and Nine Radio are all working hard to ensure a smooth transition next week when Jones retires and Fordham takes over on 2GB breakfast.

Last night Fordham had dinner then stayed over at Alan Jones' country property so he could be up at the crack of dawn to see how the breakfast show works first hand.

Fordham has worked at the other end of the day for many years, but It's not the first time he has sat in on Jones' breakfast show. As a kid he did work experience on that program.

Alan Jones, The Master Story Teller

Tuesday 12 May, 2020

Comment from Jen Seyderhelm

There’ll be better definitions but, to me, a great orator has the ability to rally individuals and groups to a cause or circumstance. A good storyteller brings to life a person, whether real or imagined.
