Ali Plath will join the Gold Coast’s 92.5 Triple M Breakfast show alongside Peter ‘Spida’ Everitt and Sean ‘Flan’ Flanagan from January 2022.
She will replace Bridget ‘Bridge’ Brousard who left the program last week to relocate with husband Jamie in Tasmania.
Ali has Queensland roots having grown up in Brisbane and is passionate about sport, with her sporting history having taken her from the touch footy field to the AFL oval and to the cricket pitch.
She has played over many years at the Gold Coast’s home of touch, Owen Park, and last year represented the Gold Coast at the Queensland State Cup in its over 30s women’s team.
Ali’s touch achievements have seen her represent Australia from 1997-2013 at numerous Trans-Tasman tournaments and two World Cups in Sydney and Japan, where she co-captained the Mixed Open team that included the likes of rugby league legend, Benji Marshall.
This mother of four children, not only loves sport, she also isn’t afraid of the stage, leading her to make the Queensland State Finals of Raw Stand-Up Comedy, and also perform in the ensembles of Tasmanian productions, My Fair Lady and We Will Rock You, both playing at the Theatre Royal in Hobart.
Ali’s radio history began following an Intro to Radio course at AFTRS in Sydney and she then landed on community radio at Bay FM in the South-East Queensland Redlands region.
She then entered the doors of Triple M Brisbane learning the ropes and how to work the panel and, after earning her stripes, she landed a breakfast gig on Hobart’s 107.3 Triple M, alongside Dave Noonan, in 2017.
Now returning to the Coast for good, Ali arrives from her most recent breakfast show, on the Sunshine Coast’s, Zinc FM, and says, “It’s impossible to adequately express my excitement levels for joining Triple M Breakfast on the Gold Coast. It’s such a privilege to step into the show, alongside Flan and Spida. Bridge has left a huge legacy at 92.5 and it’s one that I will do my absolute best to carry on and do her proud. I honestly feel like I’ve won radio lotto.
“As a South East Queenslander, I can’t wait to call the Gold Coast home, along with my family. It will be the first time in six years I’ll have my four kids all living in the same city. I’m also about to gain two of the best radio teammates anyone could possibly ask for. Bring on 2022!”
92.5 Triple M Content Director, Corey Kay, says, “It’s a fresh chapter for Triple M in 2022 with the addition of Ali to our local line up of Flan and Spida. Ali is genuine, loves a laugh, has life experiences, yarns that’ll make your toes curl, and a deep passion for being part of the community. We know the Gold Coast and Tweed are going to love Ali as much as we do.”
