Stubbsy back at the MMMs
Comedian Richard Stubbs is returning to his FM radio roots with an upcoming stint at his old home: Triple M.
After coming off the air at ABC Melbourne in 2015, Stubbs has returned to the comedy scene and has made a few appearances on 3AW weekends.
Now it’s been announced ‘Stubbsy’ will be filling in for the Hot Breakfast while the team takes a well-deserved, post-football season break.
After a week of shows from Hawaii starting this Monday, the Hot Breakfast will hand the reigns over to Stubbs, Mark Howard and Rosemary Walton for a week of shows that’s been dubbed ‘Triple M’s Spring Break’.
While no fan of the early start, Stubbs has told Radio Today exclusively that he’s looking forward to having some fun on air.
“Look, it’s all care and no responsibility. It’s a week and I’m just looking to having to have a bit of fun.
“And if ratings go up, I did it. If ratings go down, it wasn’t me!”
Triple M management is just as happy to get Richard back on the air.
“We’re excited to welcome back Richard to the hallowed halls of Triple M. He’s a big part of Triple M’s heritage,” Triple M Melbourne content director Shaun Gough tells Radio Today.
“His evergreen passion for radio is obvious and infectious. I’m looking forward to hearing him with Rosie and Howie.”
Stubbs started out at 3XY in the 80s as part of the “XY-Zoo” breakfast show, before joining Triple M in mornings.
Following the departure of the D-Generation, he moved to breakfast in 1992 with Eddie McGuire, Brigitte Duclos and Brad McKenzie and after a stint at 101.1 TT FM, Stubbs joined 774 ABC in 2006 as afternoon presenter.
‘Triple M’s Spring Break’ launches Monday, October 15.
Excited to say I’ll be part of a team filling in for @mmmhotbreakfast when they’re on a break in 2 weeks. How much fun? What kind of idiot goes back to Breakfast? Thank God @rosewal has kindly said she’d drive the bus #Allcare #Noresponsibility
