Philip Brady, 80 not out, declares

Simon Owens and Philip Brady

For almost 30 years Philp Brady has dominated nights in Melbourne on 3AW.

In the most recent GfK survey the 3AW Nightline program Brady co-hosts with Simon Owens pulled a 27.9% share. 

Nightline will be replaced, Mon-Fri, by Nights with John Stanley, (below left) networked from 8pm – midnight through the eastern states.

But it won’t be the end as a broadcaster for the octogenarian who will continue with Owens to co-host ​Remember When every Sunday night from 10pm to midnight. The nostalgia show currently boasts a massive 32.9% share of the Melbourne audience.

Philip Brady said, “​3​AW is family to me. Apart from almost 30 years of Nightline, I was the station’s casual weekend music presenter right through the 1970s so my heart is at 3AW and will continue to be so. Thanks to all our loyal listeners, callers and regulars; it has been a fun ride so far and will continue to be so at weekends. Long may our hearts beat together.​“ 

John Stanley said, “​Philip is a giant of our industry and for me, it’s a daunting but exciting challenge to move into the space so successfully occupied by Philip, Bruce and Simon over so many years. It’s been a privilege being on 3AW this year from 8pm to 10pm and I’ll be striving to maintain the Nightline tradition of entertaining and engaging radio between 10pm and midnight. The late night audience is loyal, interesting and often colourful. I’m looking forward to talking to and hearing from them.​ “

Simon Owens said, “​Nightline began in April 1970 hosted by Don Taylor and has had a raft of hosts including Donovan Joyce, John McIntosh, Alex Kenworthy, Derryn Hinch, Bruce Mansfield, Philip Brady, and myself. John Stanley is intelligent, informative, and great company and I know he will continue the strong tradition of late night radio on 3AW.“​
