"As a lifetime listener and fan, I'm thrilled to join the Triple M team here in Wagga,” said Jamie.
“I grew up listening to Nightlife with Luke Grealy on 2WG - every night, while I was supposed to be doing my homework - and to be offered the opportunity to contribute to that continuing legacy is incredibly exciting!"
Co-host Leigh said: “He can sing, he can dance, he’s funny and he’s pretty much who I think I am after a couple of beers.”
SCA Regional Content Director – Wagga Wagga, Duncan Potts, said: “I’m very excited to have Jamie ‘officially’ join our Triple M Riverina family.
