Shake-up at Triple M Sydney: Mornings presenter Becko departs
Triple M Sydney’s Mornings presenter Chris ‘Becko’ Beckhouse is no longer with the network.
Beckhouse has been with Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) for over two decades in on-air and producing roles spanning Brisbane’s B105, Perth’s 92.9 and Melbourne’s Fox FM. He joined Tripe M in Sydney in September 2009 and until recently was the program manager and Mornings announcer.
Radio Today understands a short email went out to Triple M staff on Friday detailing Beckhouse’s departure.
An SCA spokesperson responded to Radio Today’s queries with a statement:
“After 22 years with SCA, Chris Beckhouse has resigned from his gig of Mornings Announcer on the Triple M Network – we wish him all the best on an exciting new phase in his career.
“We will commence recruiting for a replacement for in the coming weeks – so watch this space.”
Radio Today understands Triple M Sydney Breakfast anchor Chris ‘Pagey’ Page has also been absent from the network, with ‘Brendo’ filling in this morning.
An SCA spokesperson, however, told Radio Today that Page is simply on leave.
Radio Today attempted to reach both Page and Beckhouse for comment.
