Triple M listeners already know Lawrence from his appearances on Merrick & Australia and The Triple M Cricket Commentary Team. Lawrence has been a regular contributor to Triple M Brisbane Breakfast, calling in as “Big Mal” and most recently filling in for Ed Kavalee whilst he was on paternity leave.
“I’m really looking forward to The Triple M Big Breakfast with Marto and Robin in 2018. Having filled in for Ed with the guys, and having played Rich Uncle Mal over the past three years I have a great rapport with them and the whole team,” Lawrence said.
“The show is fun to do and I think that translates to our listeners who feel free to jump in and get involved. There is however, a little trepidation because Ed is leaving some big shoes to fill, not because he’s talented just because he’s got massive shoes.”
Triple M Brisbane’s Content Director David Rymer said, “Marto and Robin are everything Brisbane. They’re not afraid to speak their mind and love a great laugh with the people of Brisbane each and every morning. The addition of ‘The Moonman’ will bring a brilliant injection of dry, quick comedy to the show; it’s the stuff we are famous for and it’s why our listeners tune in.”
Ed Kavalee, who has shared the brekkie microphone at Triple M Brisbane for the past four years, will be heading back to Melbourne to spend time with his new baby boy Arnold Martin Kavalee, and his wife Tiffiny Hall. Kavalee will continue with Southern Cross Austereo as well as his raft of media commitments including Have You Been Paying Attention?
The announcement was made live in-studio this morning. You can hear it below.
While it’s not confirmed where Ed Kavalee is headed, it’s rumoured he will join Fox FM’s breakfast show as a replacement for Dave Thornton upon his permanent return to Melbourne.
