Darren Scott axed from Supersport & Jacaranda FM
With the World Cup only 3 days away it looks as if Supersports studio team will be a man short.
Word on the street is that Darren Scott has been axed from BOTH Supersport & Jacaranda after a racial slur over the weekend. According to Channel24, he swore at colleague and made racist remarks at the Mabula lodge in Bela-Bela on Friday evening during a team building event
According the Jacaranda site, he handed in his “resignation” earlier today from his very popular morning show, which sounds like it has completely changed the stations audience. – http://www.jacarandafm.com/kagiso/content/en/jacaranda/jacaranda-lifes-greatest-hits?oid=1357983&sn=Detail&pid=756865
And according the Supersport site, Scott was “relieved” of his presenting duties, indefintely, after the incident – http://www.supersport.com/press-releases/news/110907/Statement_on_Darren_Scott
Interesting times ahead. My money. It won’t be long before we hear Darren’s voice on 2OceansVibe Radio.
(edit: I been asked by some of the readers to clarify what I mean in the above statement. Not that I have to, but thought I would anyway. My statement simply states that a lot of the “greats” of South African Radio are moving to online radio. Given that 2OV radio is one of the first online radio stations in the country, and has already snapped up some big names in SA Radio, I insinuated that Darren would be a good addition to the already fantastic line-up. In retrospect and given what he said, I suppose it may not be THE best decision, but if you look past at what happened and what great personality & presenter he really is, he would most probably be a great addition to the team. Pure speculation. Case closed)
