George Hook suspended from duties at Newstalk

The process regarding the presenter's comments last week is ongoing

Newstalk has confirmed that George Hook has been suspended from his duties at the station.

The process regarding his comments last week is ongoing.

It came after the comments were condemned by groups such as the National Women's Council of Ireland (NWCI).

On Monday, George Hook offered a "profound apology" for his recent comments about rape.

Newstalk last week issued an unreserved apology for the comments.

Managing Editor Patricia Monahan said that comments made were “totally wrong and inappropriate and should never have been made.”
