A Labor leader has threatened to sack controversial broadcaster Alan Jones from a sports board during a fiery radio interview.
New South Wales Opposition Leader Michael Daley made the threat to remove Jones from the Sydney Cricket Ground Trust on his own radio 2GB program on Tuesday morning.
‘If I’m elected, the board will go,’ Mr Daley told Jones on 2GB radio.

‘Sorry about the SCG Trust, thanks for your service.’
Jones replied: ‘We don’t mind, that’s your job.’
The entire board of the SCG Trust – including Jones – would be sacked if Labor won the NSW state election on March 23.
Mr Daley told Jones on Tuesday morning that he intended to remove the trustees that oversee operation of the Moore Park sporting facilities, such as Allianz Stadium and the Sydney Cricket Ground.
He noted the board did the job for free.

Mr Daley later said in a statement he intended to replace the board with people that ‘better reflect the diversity of the sports loving people of NSW’.
He alleged the board had colluded with the NSW government to spend more than $700 million of taxpayer money to demolish and rebuild Allianz Stadium.
In the statement, Mr Daley qualified that he would only sack the unelected members of the board.
Phil Waugh and David Gilbert, who were elected by members will stay, as will former test cricketer Stuart MacGill.
