Ben Fordham quits as Australian Ninja Warrior host

Nine host bows out to concentrate on Nine radio gig.

Ben Fordham has quit as host of Australian Ninja Warrior after 4 years.

Fordham hosts breakfast radio on Nine-owned 2GB and has decided the commitment (and overnight shoots) are no longer compatible.

“This season was full on,” he said on social media. “I was working all the way through the night and then going direct to breakfast radio. I’d like to thank @redbull for getting me through.”

This leaves Rebecca Maddern as a remaining host and Shane Crawford as course commentator, and a likely new name to step into the breach.

  1. This can only be a good thing. Neither he nor Bec have any connection to the type of action they’re commentating. I’d like to see a total cast overhaul. Brendos74’s suggestion of Beau Ryan isn’t a bad start. He’s excitable and probably would be a legit fan.
