Early mornings will never be the same again.
Karl Stefanovic’s greatest bromance, sports reporter Ben Fordham, is quitting.
But it’s for a pretty sweet reason so we’ll let it slide.
After his four year stint on the Channel Nine breakfast show, Today’s sports reporter, Ben Fordham, 37, is calling it quits.
Our beloved larrikin will leave Today at the end of the year.
Hold back your tears. He will still be hosting the Drive program on Sydney talk back radio station 2GB.
He said, of his two jobs, “This is now the fourth and final year that I can work both ends of the day.”
He promised his wife (7 reporter Jodie Spears) that he’d only do breakfast TV and Drive radio for a year. So after four years, he’s hanging up his television coat.
“Jodie has been incredibly understanding with my work arrangement but I need to be a bit realistic about what I can do and how long I can do it,” he told The Australian.
And if you’re worried about how The Today Show’s host, Karl Stefanovic is going to take the news, don’t fret.
Fordham has tweeted, “I’ve broken the news to @karlstefanovic and explained…’it’s not you, it’s me’.”
