What next for Marty Sheargold? The networks & the man himself speak
The radio rumour mill, never quiet for long, has gone into overdrive about what could be next for former Nova Drive host Marty Sheargold.
Adding fuel to the ferocious fire is this week’s newly launched Radio Today Tonight podcast, which reveals exactly what the networks have to say about his future employment prospects with them. The man himself, Sheargold, also spoke to Radio Today Tonight (via email) about his hopes for 2021.
As revealed on Radio Today Tonight, the major podcast networks, SCA’s PodcastOne, ARN’s iHeartPodcast Network, and the recently separated from Nova, Acast, denied any podcast deal was in the works.
With a podcast seemingly off the cards, Radio Today Tonight then explored the other emerging option – that Sheargold will end up co-hosting Triple M Breakfast in Melbourne (but with, or without, Eddie McGuire? That is the question).
Triple M’s Mike ‘Fitzy’ Fitzpatrick told Radio Today Tonight that suggestion was “fake news”, that in the absence of information, people make things up, and that there are no spots available in the line-up anyway.
That fire was further watered down by a veteran radio programmer who told the show that Sheargold ending up on Triple M Breakfast in Melbourne is about as likely as him doing 2Day FM Breakfast. Wouldn’t that be something?
Denials were also flying from the man himself, with Sheargold telling Radio Today Tonight that 2021 feels like a lifetime away in lockdown.
“I’ll be happy to go out for dinner by then, let alone any kind of gainful employment,” he said via email.
