Radio Chaser parody Fairfax & Nine merger, announcing Triple M & smoothfm union
The ground-breaking merger between the Nine Network and Fairfax today has been on the lips of the entire media industry, but not to be outdone, Radio Chaser have tapped into the hype to announce their own merger.
This afternoon the boys announced the official merger of Triple M and smoothfm, to create a brand new station; Triple Smooth.
“The new entity, which is to be called Triple Smooth, promises to be three times smoother than Smooth FM, for a wider mix of smooth,” announced Chaser correspondent Charles Firth from the steps of Triple M.
“On our new breakfast show, we’ll be playing long, non-stop blocks of yacht rock. And in drive time, listeners can grab a glass of wine as they unwind to the smooth sounds of AC/DC and Nirvana.
“There will be a few changes to the lineup. Instead of the Rush Hour, MG will now be hosting the Bikram Yoga Hour.
“Kennedy Molloy will now be Kennedy Richard Wilkins. And the Grill Team will become the Gently Simmering Team.
“And finally, Ugly Phil has been replaced by Ruggedly Handsome Phillip.”
