The Grill Team gives Matty an almighty send-off

Assistant Editor

As hard as it is to imagine The Grill Team without Matty Johns, that’s the scenario facing listeners after today.

Bringing much more than just excellent sporting knowledge, Matty transformed into a great all-rounder as he spent eight years waking Sydney up with his jokes, characters and great yarns.

His final show this morning saw a call and a guest appearance from Triple M Sydney content director Jamie Angel, and calls from Hugh Jackman and Ray Hadley.

Gus also gifted Matty a seat from the soon-to-be-demolished Sydney Football Stadium, where he played many games in his NRL career.

Sydney’s Polish Club were the final band to perform for Live At The Grill for 2019.

Matty also gave a heart-felt farewell to his co-hosts Gus & Pagey, whilst also shouting out the man who hired him; Craig Bruce.

It marks a transformative two-years for The Grill Team, after it lost Mark ‘MG’ Geyer at the end of last year, though he remained with the network on The Rush Hour.

Triple M also put together a lovely video tribute with some of Matty’s best moments, which you can see below:

I hope Lawrence Mooney is the one replacing Matty Johns for the Triple M Sydney breakfast show “The Grill Team”! The Moonman is one of the few talents on Australian radio that can replace Matty and still make the Triple M Sydney breakfast show funny and entertaining in 2019 and beyond!

Chris Page is the only talented one left, he needs to move on from MMM. Gus is the clown sidekick that gets made fun of, does eating contests etc for attention so will find it a bit tougher to get the next gig.
