Confirmed: Lawrence Mooney joins Triple M Sydney Breakfast
Triple M Sydney has unveiled its 2019 Breakfast lineup, with some new additions set to join the show.
Following the departure of Matty Johns, Lawrence ‘The Moonman’ Mooney is joining from #1 rating Triple M Brisbane Brekky show The Big Breakfast.
Mooney appears set to be at the centre of proceedings, with the new show to be called Moonman in the Morning.
As well as his recent work on radio in Brisbane and as a regular on Triple M Drive show Kennedy Molloy, Mooney is also known as the host of ABC TV show Dirty Laundry Live and as the winner of Best Show at The Sydney Comedy Festival 2015.
His Malcolm Turnbull character has recently sold out comedy shows across the country.
The team will also welcome Jess Eva from the 2018 season of The Block into a new-look lineup.
No stranger to radio, Jess has spent time hosting Breakfast on 91.9 Sea FM on the Sunshine Coast.
They’ll join Gus Worland, who in 2019 celebrates his 10th year on Triple M Sydney Breakfast, as well as show anchor, comedian and writer, Chris ‘Pagey’ Page.
“We can’t just re-do the Grill Team,” said Triple M head of content Mike Fitzpatrick.
“It’s time to move on. This will be a real comedy and music show that gives Sydney a unique look at what’s happening in the city and plays the biggest rock hits.
“From Parramatta to Palm Beach, Cronulla to Castle Hill, this will be a show to make Sydney laugh.
“Lawrence is in career best form and has been honing his skills in Brisbane. Gus is a much loved part of our family and Jess has been doing breakfast radio on the Sunshine Coast for 6 years now, she’s a star of the future.”
Mooney says he is honoured to be given the opportunity.
“I’m actually pretty honoured to be doing breakfast in the biggest market in the country. I’m following in the footsteps of some big names at Triple M and that absolutely thrills me.”
Over summer and into the New Year, Triple M Sydney will continue to play ‘Rock’s Greatest Hits’, with their playlist expanding recently to include more music from the past 50 years.
