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.
