2CC sack Gardner
2CC in Canberra have sacked announcer and station news director, Jorian Gardner.
Gardner made headlines back in June when he was suspended for making a joke about 'upskirting' Prime Minister Julia Gillard (see that story here)
Then in August he was in strife after he suggested prison guards were smuggling drugs into jail (see here).
Speaking about what went down yesterday, Gardner said:
''2CC and I departed company this morning. We had a heated discussion about newsroom operations in which he (GM Michael Jones) sacked me without proper cause."
''It's an extremely sad day for me, after losing an arts festival that I thought I would be directing next year, to lose my position at 2CC. I don't understand why 2CC management have taken the position that they have and I will be taking further action.''
But GM Jones has told The Canberra Times: ''That's not a correct version of events. I can't comment on what the event was, but that's not anywhere near close.''
