Jacaranda FM management have distanced themselves from veteran DJ and rugby presenter Darren Scott’s racial slur, calling it “indefensible”.
On Thursday, radio station manager Kevin Fine said the former Just Plain breakfast show presenter had terminated his contract with the radio station on Monday, the day management began an internal investigation into the matter.
“Jacaranda were in the process of making a qualified decision… but because the media intervened. we weren’t able to complete the process,” he said.
Fine said while Scott had apologised for his utterance and everyone deserved a second chance, he needed to take responsibility for his behaviour and not shift the blame on to external factors.
