TV presenter quits orthodox EO

TV presenter Arie Boomsma is to leave the orthodox Christian broadcasting company EO because a ‘fertile alliance is no longer possible’.

Boomsma, a minister’s son who is heavily tattooed, has had several run-ins with his employer.
Earlier this year, he was suspended for posing shirtless for magazine L’Homo. The EO was also unhappy with his plans to launch a cabaret show based on Jesus called ‘A man walked over the water’.
