Farewell to the Highway Patrol

Two years ago the trio of Merrick Watts, Julian Schiller and Rachel Corbett came together and launched The Highway Patrol national drive-time show across the Triple M Network.

Next year, Triple M will launch a new-look national network show which means that Merrick and The Highway Patrol will not be returning in 2014.

Head of Triple M Mike Fitzpatrick said: “We’ve made some successful changes to the Triple M network this year and now we’re going to build on those changes by creating a real alternative to the drive time line-ups across the country.

“While we are excited by the prospect of creating something new and different in drive next year,  we are sad to be saying goodbye to Mez, Jules and Rach who are hard-working talent  and much loved”.

Merrick Watts said: “ I have enjoyed every second of the last two years on air with Rachel and Jules, it is disappointing that it will be coming to an end but I am planning to make the most of the next couple of months together on air.”

Merrick and the team will continue to be on air until the end of the year. Listen to the announcement here.
