Ben Fordham has responded to claims that he will take over the guest role of Tracy Grimshaw in the current affairs show that she has helped for 13 years.

Ben, 42 – who has been working on 2 GB since 2011, spoke live on the radio on Tuesday and confirmed that he had called Tracy on Tuesday morning to discuss speculation.

In a conversation with Fitzy and Wippa on Nova 96.9, the Ninja Warrior host revealed: & I am happy to confirm live on Nova. Tracy Grimshaw is an Australian institution. She's not going anywhere. & # 39;
Ben joined ACA in 1999 and has since contributed to 60 Minutes, Nine News and Today – sure to give him the credentials to take over.
According to the report, Tracy, 59, is said to have been engaged in top-level discussions to leave ACA in what is a & # 39; seamless & # 39; transition would be.

A Nine & # 39; insider & # 39; the publication would have said: & # 39; It's all a bit of a crazy game of musical seats! But that happens on radio and TV when a big player goes further – it has a domino effect. & # 39;
They continued: & # 39; And with Nine now in control of 2 GB, it makes these movements not only possible, but almost seamless. & # 39;
However, a spokesperson for Nine also denied claims to Daily Mail Australia on Monday.
When Nine merged with Fairfax last year, it inherited 54.4 percent of Macquarie Media, owners of 2 GB in Sydney, 3AW in Melbourne, 6PR in Perth and 4BC in Brisbane.
He got it: Ben joined ACA in 1999 and has since contributed to 60 Minutes, Nine News and Today – certainly because he gave him the credentials to take over
