Triple M has announced that Mick Molloy will return next year for a brand new show with Mark ‘MG’ Geyer to “shake up” Sydney Breakfast.
Molloy and Geyer in the Morning promises to bring Triple M listeners a “fresh” new breakfast show. Natarsha Belling will join the show as newsreader.
“I’m excited to be returning to my spiritual home at Triple M and look forward to getting amongst it, in the Sydney breakfast radio scene,” said Molloy.
“After a year away from the radio waves I wanted a new challenge and Sydney is the perfect opportunity. I’m also looking forward to working with MG and swapping stories. And if this doesn’t work out, I’ll throw my hat in the ring at The Project. I hear there’s an opening.”
Mick and MG in the Morning will air between 6-9am on weekdays from 16 January on 104.9 Triple M and on LiSTNR.
Jess Eva, who co-hosted the 104.9 Triple Breakfast show with MG, will not return to the show next year but will stay part of the “Triple M family” next year.
“I cannot wait to work with Micky, who I regard as radio royalty,” said Geyer.
“One of us owns a pub, the other owns a gym. The ‘cross-over’ after work activities will be a hoot!”
SCA Chief Content Officer, Dave Cameron, said “Mick Molloy has Triple M blood running through his veins, and to bring Mick back to headline Triple M Sydney breakfast is a triumph. He is truly one of Australia’s greatest radio performers and we know that his legendary style of radio comedy already resonates for Sydney listeners from his previous successful stint in Drive. Molloy and MG are an incredibly charismatic pairing who will wake up Sydney with Triple M’s unique irreverence and energy, and a show that won’t sound like anything else in Sydney.”
“I am so very grateful to be able to call SCA my professional family and to also have the opportunity to continue to work with them. My world has just expanded, allowing me to follow my real passion of becoming a sex symbol,” Eva said.
