Triple M makes drive official
The worst-kept secret in radio has been confirmed with Southern Cross Austereo officially confirming that Merrick Watts co-hosts on drive will be Rachel Corbett and Julian Schiller. The show will be branded as the Highway Patrol and will be broadcast on the Triple M network and the SCA regional Localworks stations at differing times.
Craig Bruce, SCA's Head of Content said 'I'm confident that Merrick and the Highway Patrol will quickly become one of the funniest shows on Australian radio'.
Undoubtedly, Triple M will be expecting some (primarily) male cume from Nova listeners sampling Watts new show,and it is likely to have a barrage of publicity across the next fortnight as they drive awareness to generate the 'curious cume'. 'Merrick and the Highway Patrol' will commence on Monday 27 February, a delayed start due to the serving of Watts non-compete clause with DMG Radio.
