Chris Smith has returned to the airwaves only two months after his drunken behaviour at a work function got him sacked. Smith has been thrown a lifeline by international digital talk station TNT Radio where he now presents an afternoon program five days a week.
The Daily Telegraph reports that Smith confirmed the surprise news on his Twitter account where he has been keeping followers regularly updated with his progress on becoming sober.
“A new job, a new start, a whole new opportunity,” he enthused.
“It is not just a new job,” Smith told the Daily Telegraph.
“I have delved deeper than ever before on why I self sabotage with the help of rehab, psychiatrists and psychologists, plus I have given up the grog completely.
“I have been 75 days sober this week, which I have never had the guts or professional help to do, thinking I could always manage my binges but I couldn’t and I can’t and I never will so I have come to that realisation and I had to bite the bullet and get rid of it.”
Smith, checked himself into a mental health facility in December after apologising profusely for his “humiliating” behaviours.
Alan Jones joins Chris every Monday, and they will share their unique take on the events and issues facing the nation and the world.
For Alan’s fans it’s his first regular return to the radio waves since his triumphant era on 2GB and 2UE. For Chris he’ll return to the microphone from 2PM Queensland time Monday through to Friday on TNT Radio https://tntradio.live/shows/the-chris-smith-show
