After his departure from Triple M Brisbane’s breakfast show was announced earlier this month, Lawrence “Moonman” Mooney will now host a new comedy brekkie show on Triple M Sydney in 2019.
Moonman in the Morning will also feature breakfast radio veteran Gus Worland, who returns for his 10th year in Triple M Sydney’s breakfast slot; along with radio announcer The Block contestant Jess Eva; and writer and comedian Chris Page.
The new show comes after the departure of Triple M Sydney brekkie host Matty Johns, who had been waking up the harbour city on the station since 2011.
Triple M’s head of content, Mike Fitzpatrick, said Moonman in the Morning will be unlike any other on Sydney radio.
“We can’t just re-do The Grill Team – it’s time to move on. This will be a real comedy and music show that gives Sydney a unique look at what’s happening in the city and plays the biggest rock hits.
“Lawrence is in career-best form and has been honing his skills in Brisbane. Gus is a much-loved part of our family, and Jess has been doing breakfast radio on the Sunshine Coast for six years now. She’s a star of the future.”
Commenting on his new role, Mooney said: “I’m actually pretty honoured to be doing breakfast in the biggest market in the country. I’m following in the footsteps of some big names at Triple M and that absolutely thrills me.”
