George Hook has been suspended from Newstalk after his controversial comments regarding rape.
The radio presenter made the remarks on his show last week, causing huge public calls for action to be taken by the station.
The 76-year-old later took to Twitter to apologise for the comments he made and the offence he caused.
Just last night, fellow Newstalk presenter Dil Wickremasinghe announced that she would not be presenting her Global Village weekend show on the station until action was taken regarding George’s comments.
Newstalk today announced on twitter that George has been suspended from his duties and “the process regarding his comments is ongoing.”
