Radio Station plans to hire a censor to dampen controversial shock jock Alan Jones to prevent him from insulting listeners and alienating advertisers after & # 39; sexist & # 39; Jacinda Ardern comments
- 2GB can be a & # 39; dump jockey & # 39; to censor Alan Jones
- It follows an advertising boycott after he made comments about Jacinda Ardern
- A & # 39; dump jockey & # 39; is a panel operator that mutes sections that they find too sensitive
A & # 39; dump jockey & # 39; can be appointed to censor Alan Jones to prevent him from lifting controversial comments about the sky.
Radio station 2GB is considering the move after Jones made controversial comments about Jacinda Ardern, the Prime Minister of New Zealand.
The shock jock said he said he hoped Scott Morrison had been informed to push a sock down Mrs. Ardern's throat.
It is thought that Jones cost the Macquarie radio network more than $ 4 million after his comments sparked an ad boycott.
A & # 39; dump jockey & # 39; is a panel operator whose task is to listen carefully to a radio program and to suspend or censor sections that they find too offensive or legally sensitive to air.

The last step of the network to control Jones comes after he received his third and final warning three weeks ago, The Daily Telegraph reported.
Insiders say that Jones will be furious if bosses censor him.
Although the Jones team has been trained to use the switch that causes a seven-second delay, it is thought that they will not use it because they are too loyal to the shock jock.
The failure of the Jones team to use the dump switch when making his sock comments led to an internal investigation within 2 GB.
Jones commented on Prime Minister Scott Morison to & # 39; push a sock down & # 39; Ardern & # 39; s throat was not censored by his production team, which led to an internal investigation
The AUSTEREO management previously insisted on the appointment of a dump switch at the 2DAYFM radio station following the Kyle Sandiland radio scandal in 2009.
The scandal involved a lie detection stunt in which a teenage girl had to admit that she was a rape victim, which led to a boycott of the advertiser and the suspension of Sandiland.
