SCA today announced The Marty Sheargold Show will be Triple M Melbourne’s new FM breakfast show in 2021 alongside a 3-4pm syndication on Triple M’s 49 stations across the country.
Marty Sheargold needs no introduction. One of Australia’s funniest humans, Marty has built an enviable radio and TV legacy with his whip-smart, wry, nonchalant approach to entertaining audiences. Marty was the driving force behind the number one national afternoon show he helmed but will now embrace the exciting opportunity to host his own FM breakfast radio show for Melburnians. Marty began his radio career at Triple M 17 years ago and is excited about his return to where it all began.
Marty Sheargold said: “Firstly I’d like to congratulate The Hot Breakfast on an amazing run. They are all incredibly talented, highly regarded people in the radio business and I wish Eddie, Luke and Rosie continued success with whatever they choose to do next. I’m honoured to be returning home to Triple M, the brand that kick started my radio career. To be given the opportunity to have my own show at a network I consider the backbone of FM radio is a true privilege. It is the job you hope for, but fear may never happen. Triple M has entrusted Melbourne breakfast to me, and I want to make the absolute most of the faith they have placed in me. Then retire. Talk to you in January!”
SCA Chief Content Officer, Dave Cameron, said: “Getting Marty Sheargold back on Triple M in 2021 just made the world feel a little bit right again. Melbourne at breakfast, and Australia in the afternoon, is about to experience one of this country’s finest comedians and broadcasters with a show guaranteed to be unlike any other. There is only one Marty Sheargold and there is only one home of rock, sport and comedy. We are so excited to welcome home The Marty Sheargold Show to Triple M and SCA. 2021 cannot come quick enough.”
Triple M Head of Content, Mike Fitzpatrick, said: “When you’re creating a show with one host you need a unique performer who cares about, and understands, the medium. Marty’s style and attitude fits hand in glove with the Triple M brand and we’re stoked to have him back where it all began. He’s also asked me to ensure I use the term ‘prodigal son returns’ in any quote I give to the press, so there it is.”
Marty will also hit the road across Australia from May 2021 with a return to stand-up comedy with dates in Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane. The Marty Sheargold Show on Triple M starts Monday 18 January at 6am in Melbourne and will be heard every afternoon around the country from 3-4pm before Kennedy Molloy from 4-6pm. In 2021 Triple M will be the home of Australian comedy royalty and the go-to destination for laughs on the drive home.
