The experienced journalist has been working in the media for over 30 years and regularly appears on Channel Seven & # 39; s Sunrise and Channel Nine & # 39; s Weekend Today Show and Mornings.
But his very successful career has occasionally been startled by controversies.
While working for A Current Affair, he caught the fake signature of the Channel Nine corporate lawyer to get a prisoner out of prison for an interview in 1994.
Smith was suspended from his role after a criminal investigation into the case.
He was sentenced to two years in prison suspended for two years and given a good two-year behavioral commitment.
He was eventually fired from A Current Affair following a separate incident in the late 1990s after allegedly exposing himself to two female colleagues at the work party.
The incident was initially laughed at by Smith's bosses, but the women complained to Nine Network and Smith was fired.
Both women left the show and it was rumored that they had made large payouts.
The controversy continued to follow Smith during his time at 2GB.
He was suspended from the Macquarie Radio Network in 2009 after a Christmas party after allegedly harassing a number of colleagues.
An apologetic Smith opened for the Daily telegram after the incident, admit that he was drunk and could not remember the details of the night.
Smith could possibly be thrown into the evening segment and trade his spot with Steve Price, the current night guest
& # 39; I was in a crazy extended drinking mode, & # 39; he said then.
& # 39; That has happened to me a few times in the last decade – I'm just black and that's what happened.
& # 39; I'm not saying that's an excuse. & # 39;
He said he had apologized to all the people involved and that no official complaints about his behavior had been made.
In 2011, Smith again received criticism after hosting a telephone in the competition, promising prizes to callers who could estimate the number of asylum seekers who had died at sea and would be buried in Sydney.
