Troy Ellis celebrates 30 years in radio

Marty Sheargold pulled off a massive surprise for his friend and Triple M Melbourne’s The Marty Sheargold Show anchor Troy Ellis to celebrate his 30 years in radio. There was laughter, a few tears, memories and special guest appearances from Matt Tilley, Jo Stanley, Adam Richard, Stick Mareebo and Max Gawn. Tilley even brought in a cake for the celebration, telling listeners stories of pranking Ellis whilst they were on-air together, and their famous trip to Kate and Williams’s Royal Wedding.

Sheargold paid a poignant tribute to Ellis saying:

“On a personal note, I’ve loved working with you, I would say more than I’ve enjoyed working with anyone in that role that you do. Your professionalism, even-handedness, maturity, and temperament are just a joy to be around and work with.

Thank you, buddy. You’ve been an absolute breath of fresh air for me.”

Ellis had covered for Sheargold during his personal leave last year.

SCA Chief Content Officer, Dave Cameron, said:

“Troy Ellis is a Melbourne radio institution, having been a critical part of many leading Breakfast shows over the last 30 years, and still one of the best show anchors in Australian radio.

Our huge congratulations to Troy on an ongoing remarkable run on-air entertaining generations of Melbourne listeners.”

And Ellis said:

“I can’t believe it’s been 30 years! What a ride to be a part of some extraordinary shows and to work alongside amazing talent.

It’s truly been a pleasure, and continues to be here at Triple M. How good to be able to do what I still love all these years later, it’s wonderful.”
