It came after the comments were condemned by groups such as the National Women’s Council of Ireland (NWCI).
George Hook offered a “profound apology” for his recent comments about rape on Monday.
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.”
