Broadcaster Chris Smith lands new gig at TNT Radio

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

TNT Radio is a global 24/7 talk station with hosts from Australia, the US, Canada, the UK, Mexico, South Africa and Donbass in Ukraine.

  1. Congratulations Chris I was surprised to no end when I heard that you had left 2GB I was always interested in listening to your comments always interesting & at times quite amusing but always very direct.
    Chris I now live on The Mid-North Coast, Tuncurry we at times cannot receive some radio stations so I have not been able to tune in to enjoy your program but a very good long term friend speaks with you regularly, Chris I have a real issue that has caused me considerable concern & the loss of more than $13,000.00 and I do believe that there are other people who have also been a victim of this misuse of political bullying I am truly concerned about this situation and I am wondering if there is anyway I can discuss this with you and maybe make other people aware of this situation. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou Chris glad you are back.
