Jorian moved on from 2CC

johnboy 28 November 2012 25

CityNews has word that their former political and arts editor Jorian Gardner has parted ways with 2CC.

CONTROVERSIAL shock jock Jorian Gardner has been sacked from local radio station 2CC.

Gardner and 2CC General Manager Michael Jones confirmed the news with “CityNews” today, but both declined to comment further.

Apparently suggesting prison guards might have something to do with the drugs getting into the prison is outrageously controversial.

While we’ve had our disagreements with Jorian over the years he is one of very few media voices in this town brave enough to speak truth to power. It will be a shame for Canberra if he’s silenced.

No, we don’t.

But we do want it to be factually correct, well-researched, professional, and to make a clear distinction between news and opinion.

These would be the same people who listen to Mr Jones and who believe that they’ve been anally probed by space aliens.

And since when is gaol spelt with inverted commas?

For many people, being “factually correct, well-researched, professional, and to make a clear distinction between news and opinion” = PC groupthink.

Well Hadley is second biggest halfwit in the country, only losing top place to jones.

So, Jones is a top and Hadley’s a bottom?

I think that those roles would be reversed. Jones is defo a bottom.

Either a miss announcement by Chris Smith or Jorian Gardner is back on 2CC.

I can assure you Jorian is *not* back on 2CC despite attempts by him to get back into the local media. 2CC especially would not touch Gardner with a barge pole. He caused a serious rift with 2GB and there were rumours that Ray Hadley tried to get Singo to stop 2GB’s programs being relayed to 2CC after Gardner’s claim that drugs were being smuggled into jails by police and prison officers.

I know nothing really about the people involved, so tell me why Ray would give a damn what someone in the ACT specific media said about prison guards in the ACT?

Jorian seemed to be enjoying his awesome little bookshop last night…

Even from day one, it was only a matter of time! Jorian naturally upset people, not because he was honest, but by the way he did it. He was a distraction from the Mark Parton program and in my view did not add much value. Gotta say, not much forethought to his ‘on air’ comments. Wonder who will relieve Parton and Welsh over the holiday period??

They didn’t even demote him to 2CA.
I don’t think he had a radio voice anyway, far too monotone.

Jorian, for all his ability to organise fantastic shows, also has the incredible ability to annoy pretty much everyone.

I agree. We don’t want all our media being a PC groupthink.

I dunno, for all his (many) faults I think Jorian is a very passionate man, and that ultimately Canberra is better off with him than without him.
As for junkett’s little rant about the CO’s, if they are all doing their jobs properly and honestly then how the lump are the drugs getting in? Honestly mate, just because you or a friend or rellie of yours is a screw doesn’t mean you have to come out proclaiming the honesty of all the prison guards in the territory as if someone’s insulting you personally. Unless you’re one of the one’s funnelling smack in, of course.

What happened to cause them to finally act against him? The management of 2CC seemed to be a boys club who found it amusing that Jorian was able to annoy so many people.

I agree with Junkett, Jorian didn’t have the intelligence to be a good “shock jock”, he generally resorted to personal insults because he couldn’t sustain arguments.

Good riddance.

As much as Jorian is the reason I don’t listen to 1206 anymore, he is right about drugs in the gateway to the dirty south gaol. Blind eyes and sore bum holes for the guards. It is a joke.

Don’t know the bloke personally, but whenever I have seen/heard/read him in the media I always thought of him as a bit of a dick.

Good riddance to an ignorant grub.

I wonder whether his enthusiastic promoting of bottom-end burlesque shows contributed to 2CC’s feelings about him? I don’t mind the guy one bit, but he really hangs out with the lower end of town when it comes to “cabaret”.
