Morro signs off after 8 years in breakfast radio

Paul “Morro” Morrison spends his last week in breakfast radio at Perth community station 98.5 Sonshine FM this week.
After 8 years of early mornings leading the breakfast team Morro has realised that trying to do breakfast radio, be the full time Chaplain at West Coast Eagles and spend time with his family isn’t sustainable.
Earlier this year Morro accepted an offer from West Coast Eagles CEO Trevor Nisbett, and after 10 years of volunteering as Chaplain, they wanted him to be part of the club full time.
Morro still loved breakfast radio with the 98five family so for the last 6 months he has tried to continue breakfast radio with Kirste & Corey in a reduced hours capacity until it became evident to the team and himself that he couldn’t do both roles to his high expectations.
Morro says, “I love radio, especially with Kirste and Corey, and I could easily keep doing it for a long time but I really feel that West Coast Eagles is where I am meant to be. I love the club and a chance to journey with so many amazing people including the players, coaches and staff.
“Being the first full funded full time Chaplain of an AFL club is a special first in Australia which shows the impact Chaplains can have at elite sporting clubs. I love that I can hopefully forge a way for others in Chaplaincy”.
“I won’t miss the early mornings but I will miss the team, the 98five family, the CBM Miracles trips, the Free Coffee Fridays and the hundreds of stories from listeners of how we were a part of their hope journey, and in small and big ways made a difference in their lives. It has been a special privilege and I want to make this last week on breakfast a great one with the 98five family.”
