SCA pulls the pin on The Rush Hour with Luke, Dobbo & Margaux Parker

Assistant Editor

The Rush Hour with Luke, Dobbo & Margaux Parker has not been renewed for 2019.

The Drive show, which broadcasts from 3pm-6pm on Triple M Brisbane and 92.5 GOLD FM, will finish at the end of 2018.

Both stations will only broadcast nationally syndicated Drive show Kennedy Molloy from next year.

The show started in 2017 with a trio of Luke BradnamLibby Trickett and Ben Dobbin.

Trickett resigned from the show two months ago, with Dobbo and Luke then joined by Parker.

“After nearly two years of trying to balance the challenge of being the drive home show across both Brisbane and the Gold Coast, The Rush Hour will wrap up on December 7,” a spokesperson for SCA told Radio Today.

“Over this time we have had two drive shows in Kennedy Molloy and The Rush Hour, and the decision was made to focus on Kennedy Molloy to take our listeners home in 2019.

“The Rush Hour team are a group of extremely talented radio voices and we thank them for their hard work and storytelling.”

I wonder if this could spell the end of The Rush Hour in Melbourne and Adelaide too. Hope not.

This will leave Brisbane with only 612 ABC, 4KQ & 4BC, the only 3 radio stations with a local drive program after 3:00pm with 97.3/MMM/Hit105/Nova 106.9/MSR 882 all taking syndicated national drive programs. As for the Gold Coast only 91.7 ABC/102.9 Hot Tomato & Community Stations will have local drive programs with Sea FM/Gold FM/Radio 97 (2MW) all taking syndicated programming.

The Rush Hour has only been airing on Triple M Brisbane for an hour from 3-4pm (The program is heard in full on Gold FM Gold Coast from 3-6pm), with Kennedy Molloy airing from 4-6pm on MMM Brisbane for the most part of this year.

All 3 current members of this team are excellent broadcasters, and should land on their feet quickly.
Whispers have been heard that Luke Bradnam is the long-term replacement for Greg Martin on the Triple M Brisbane Brekky Show.
Dobbo will have no shortage of offers from the sports broadcasting community – his NRL knowledge is outstanding, and he’s become a very good communicator.
For an absolute rookie, Margaux Parker is excellent. Very good storyteller, could easily hold up an end on a major regional brekky show…

That whole show will be on breakfast next year on GoldFM Gold Coast. Both SCA breakfast shows on the coast have under performed for the last few years.

I think mmm are taking the wrong show off the air, Kennedy and molloy should be going, I am a driver in brisbane and the people I speak to just do not like shows running from other states.I think MMM are to lose a lot of listeners

Such a shame Luke, Dobbo & -Margaux won’t be back next year as it was the only local and relevant show for Queensland. Thanks so much to Luke, Doobo, Libby and Margaux for all the laughs -you will be missed.
