Alan Jones has this morning apologised on his 2GB Breakfast show for comments he made in an interview with Opera House CEO Louise Herron last week.

“I used some words in these programs about the Everest, and the Opera House, and Louise, which in hindsight I now most regret hearing, having heard the impact they’ve clearly had on some people,” said Jones.

“In relation to Louise, I was tough regarding an issue I and others felt is very important.”

The apology came hours after The Chaser had taken matters into their own hands, with a stunt that saw them project what was “apparently” Jones’ real phone number onto a number of Sydney landmarks including the Opera House.

Overnight the comedy group shared footage of some members driving around Sydney in a car with a projector attached, projecting the words “Advertise Here: Call Alan” onto the NSW Art Gallery, Parliament House and the Opera House.

“See… it really is a great billboard. Jorn Utzon would be so proud.”

In the now infamous interview between Jones and Herron, the jock called for he Opera House CEO to be sacked if she refused to “come to the party” and agree to project advertising for the Everest horse race, to take place this weekend.

Later on Friday, Premier Gladys Berejiklian and the NSW Government ruled that the Opera House must display the advertising.
