Al Porter has resigned from Today FM in a statement where he also apologized for his behaviour.

According to the Irish Independent, Al could face losses of €500k, due to leaving his job at the station as well as several other commercial deals being in jeopardy.

Al’s contract with Today FM was reportedly worth €140,000, he also has a contract with TV3 for series Blind Date.

A TV3 spokeswoman confirmed that the repeat was pulled due to the allegations.

“TV3 is aware of the allegations made against Al Porter. TV3 takes any allegations of this nature very seriously and decided it would be inappropriate to broadcast the repeat of the final episode of Blind Date scheduled for this evening.’
