Longtime friends team up for drive show on Triple M

Triple M has announced its new national drive show to replace Merrick Watts.

Longtime friends Mick Molloy and Jane Kennedy are teaming up “to drive Australia home on Triple M”.

The new show will begin on Triple M in Melbourne this October and go national in January, with an announcement of Mick’s replacement on the Hot Breakfast expected soon.

Molloy, from the legendary Martin/Molloy to the No.1 Daytime show Tough Love, has spent the last 7 years on Melbourne’s The Hot Breakfast. Mick says:
“I can’t wait to get back to my natural habitat on the drive shift. I imagine the show will be a lot like my usual conversations with Jane minus a couple of good bottles of vino”.
Jane Kennedy began her career in radio and appeared with Mick on Triple M on the ground-breaking breakfast show The D-Generation.They both went on to write and perform together with the team from the ABC TV classic The Late Show. Jane says: 
“I’m rapt to be working with Mick again and I can’t think of anyone better to do Drive with. Plus Micky’s usual excuse of sleeping through the alarm won’t wash anymore!”
Triple M’s first completely national drive time offering will commence on air in Melbourne in October, followed by Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and over 30 other markets in January. 
“It’s so cool to have these two exceptional performers on Triple M Drive” said Triple M Head of Content, Mike Fitzpatrick.
The stations where we already have local drive shows will now be followed each day by Mick and Jane, giving the Triple M Network a truly national drive footprint”.

Current drive host Merrick Watts announced in May he will be leaving Triple M when the year is out.
