Triple M Content Director, Mike Fitzpatrick said, A good result for MMM right across the board. It’s great to see the Hot Breakfast reclaim the #3 FM Breakfast spot. Ed, Mick and Darc continue to provide something different for FM breakfast –  a compelling breakfast show for grownups. Our dominance of AFL, for everyone not in a nursing home, is testament to the extremely talented on and off air teams. With finals in full swing and some big stuff planned for the rest of the year we’re looking forward to building on this result.”
