Triple M Perth gets its own Rush Hour with Lachy Reid & Andrew Embley
92.9 Triple M Perth has announced its newest show, with Triple M’s Rush Hour WA with Lachy & Embers kicking off from next week.
It will be hosted by Lachy Reid and Andrew Embley.
Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) said in a Perth radio first, the show will actually be released as a podcast first, and then broadcast on linear radio at 6pm on weekdays.
Reid is a Channel 10 sports presenter as well as a member of the Triple M Call Team, while Embley is a former West Coast Eagles premiership player who has also formed part of the Call Team.
Of his new appointment, Embley quipped: “I’m so excited to be on air, I feel the people of Perth have forgotten who I am.
“Lachy Reid owes me. If it wasn’t for our football club creating headlines through the mid-2000s, he would be unemployed. If you reckon those times were wild, wait until you hear the show.”
Reid retorted: “In 2006, Andrew Embley was hard to control in the Grand Final, and I dare say nothing will change.”
92.9 Triple M Perth content director, Tim Arnold, added: “Lachy and Embers have a unique friendship. They’re just as comfortable regaling each other with their knowledge of AFL and their off-field stories, as they are giving each other a fair amount of schtick… particularly around Lachy’s shiny head.”
