Queensland gets a state wide Rush Hour

From March 7 Elliott Lovejoy (pictured) and Annabelle ‘AB’ Brett will host The Rush Hour, a brand-new drive show on Triple M for the state, coming from deep in the heart of maroon territory, North Queensland.

With Elliot moving into the statewide program, Tammy Barker and Jason Bodge will now host breakfast on 99.5 Triple M Cairns.

SCA Head of Content – Regional, Blair Woodcock, says, “The Rush Hour with AB & Elliott will celebrate everything local and Queensland, with real music, sport and comedy at its heart. Up to date with insights and insider knowledge along with laughs and yarns that will make listeners’ cheeks hurt, this new drive show will unite regional Queensland communities and celebrate our local heroes.

 “Elliott and AB are laid back, they love their sport, they have worked all around the world, they now live in regional Queensland and they’re about as local as you can get. Pairing these two up in their home state is going to be great.

 “In an epic tale that goes back two generations, Elliott and AB are destinated to work together. Elliott’s grandfather and AB’s grandmother worked together at Radio 4BH in Brisbane, one of the first stations for the capital.” 

Lovejoy has worked throughout Canada, Abu Dhabi and Dubai doing breakfast radio before settling in Cairns on air as Triple M’s Breakfast show host, while Annabelle ‘AB’ Brett is a multitalented content creator, has worked all over the map including breakfast radio in Coffs Harbour, drive radio in Canberra and more recently shone as an anchor and producer with the hit show, Those Two Girls on LiSTNR.

Elliott says he is looking forward to turning off his alarms, “Chances are SCA called the wrong Elliott about this gig but I’m not going to call them on the mistake, it’s an unbelievable opportunity across a wonderful part of Australia. After 10 years in breakfast, I’m looking forward to turning off the alarms and driving regional Queensland home. 

“AB has an unmatched work ethic and a desire to create, create, create, and I’m also hoping she allows me to test drive her Tesla at some point.”

The Rush Hour with AB & Elliott on Triple M will air across Queensland to Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Maryborough and Fraser Coast and Toowoomba from 4pm to 6pm Monday to Friday.

Tammy Barker & Bodge for Breakfast on 99.5 Triple M Cairns starts on Monday March 7 and will air weekdays from 5.30am to 9am.
