Triple M has announced that longtime friends and comedy colleagues Mick Molloy and Jane Kennedy (pictured) are joining forces to drive Australia home in 2018 across the radio network.
Molloy, from the legendary Martin/Molloy to and Tough Love with Mick Molloy shows, has spent the last seven years on Triple M Melbourne’s The Hot Breakfast.
Kennedy began her career in radio and appeared with Mick on Triple M on The D-Generation Breakfast Show. They both went on to write and perform together with the team from the ABC TV classic The Late Show.
Triple M’s first completely national drive-time offering will commence on-air in Melbourne in October, followed by Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and over 30 other markets in January.
Triple M’s head of content, Mike Fitzpatrick, said the Triple M stations that already have drive shows will be followed Molloy and Kennedy’s show from next year, giving the network “a truly national drive footprint”.
Commenting on the new gig, Molloy said: “I can’t wait to get back to my natural habitat on the drive shift. I imagine the show will be a lot like my usual conversations with Jane minus a couple of good bottles of vino.”
Kennedy added: “I’m rapt to be working with Mick again and I can’t think of anyone better to do drive with.”
Triple M said in a statement said a new co-host for The Hot Breakfast will be announced soon.
