Brian Carlton confirmed for Triple M Hobart Breakfast
The latest bout of radio news from Hobart will have everyone in Tasmania talking.
Following the departure of Dave Noonan from Triple M Hobart Breakfast, Southern Cross Austereo has confirmed that Brian ‘Spoonman’ Carlton has accepted the gig.
This news comes just two weeks after his sudden exit from Grant Broadcasters.
It’s not the most surprising news to those following a few weeks of upheaval in Tassie radio; not to mention the almost-secret meeting between Carlton and SCA’s local GM, Ally Bradley.
In 2015 Carlton decided to permanently relocate to Tasmania. Since then he has led the Tasmania Talks team to six ACRA wins from 12 nominations.
As a member of the Triple M Network alumni, Carlton’s return to the network is a ‘coming home’.
“Triple M is my spiritual broadcast home and I’m stoked and privileged to be joining Triple M Hobart for breakfast,” said Carlton. “If you like your breakfast radio well stirred, I hope you’ll join me in Hobart. I can’t wait!”
Triple M Hobart was the fourth most listened to station in the lastest Hobart radio ratings, with 14.7% of People 10+. On the all-important Breakfast shift, Carlton has some ground to make, with 7HO FM, ABC Radio and Hit in the lead.
“We are excited to welcome Brian Carlton – the Spoonman to our Hobart team and back to the Triple M family,” Bradley added. “Brian brings a wealth of experience tackling the biggest issues inside and out of Tasmania.”
Carlton’s first show on Triple M Hobart is on November 18.
