Hot Breakfast has announced this morning that they'll be wrapping up for good after 11 years at the end of the month. Bit of a surprise to be honest. I know their ratings died in the ass when Wil Anderson came along, but surprising they're parking it all together. Be interesting to see what takes its place.

Seems like all this comedy/footy programming is coming to and end. Shitty. Regular radio is boring as fu**.

Huge cuts at Triple M even before Covid. I think I said 12 months ago that they could easily pull out of AFL / NRL coverage at any point although it sounds like that might be safe for now.

Guys like Eddie and Brayshaw cost alot of money so I expect the Rush Hour to go soon too. Sounds like Eddie will stay on but with less of a commitment.

I think it is a good move. They probably want to freshen everything up a bit.

The rush hour is still the best thing on Triple M despite them half hearting it as well as cutting the runtime in half, not to mention JB now barely even showing up. They’d be mad to get rid of it,
hopefully it stays on as a podcast
Stop advertising it as JB and Billy then when JB is never on.

Reckon it’s nothing to do with cost cutting. Regular listener and I think Eddie and Darcy would have called a mutual agreement to end it. They’ve been at each other’s throats during this COVID saga. There’s been huge tension between them. Darcy, who I think is a flog, has been attacking Dan Andrews and his restrictions all year while Eddie has been defending him. There has been many heated arguments on air.

There’s been no banter or jokes between them like their used to be.

It was on the cards.

While I'm at it, that Rosie girl on Triple M complained one day about a tweet referring to her as the token laughing chick. She said: "fair dinkum, if we get ONE more message saying I'm just the token laughing girl, I tell ya...."
Is she f'kn serious?:grinv1: If her constant cackling isn't fake, then she's not quite right. Having said all that, I haven't listened to the show for ages, so I dunno if she still does it

With those kinds of salaries you have to pull in bigger ratings. 3AW pulling four times as many which is amazing.

It will be interesting to see how they fill the slot. They could go with a similar model like a Howie, Marty Sheargold and a ex sportsman or maybe something completely different like two comedians.

I always had a lot of time for Rosie. For someone who is primarily there as a producer she contributed a lot and essentially became a part of the line up.

Here is a link to the audio of the announcement.


Ed mentions in there that he'd keep going until his kids were finished high school, which is happening end of this year. Maybe it's just one of those things where it's all just fallen into line at the right time.

Yeah for sure, initially when I heard the news my mind went straight to budget cuts in line with what appears to have been happening over the past few years at triple m... however upon listening to that this afternoon is seems a lot more like the time was right to get out and give someone else a crack.
