Bridget ‘Bridge’ Brousard to leave Triple M at the end of the year
Bridget ‘Bridge’ Brousard is leaving radio at the end of the year.
The 92.5 Triple M announcer, who has been in Breakfast radio for over two decades, made the announcement on air this week, saying she hadn’t been sacked, and it was time to put herself first.
“This has been one of the hardest, and at the same token, one of the most joyous decisions I’ve ever had to make. And I think in life, we’re all one decision away from a different life. And I’ve made that decision. And I’m ready for a new adventure,” she told co-hosts Peter ‘Spida’ Everitt and Sean ‘Flan’ Flanagan.
The veteran host noted she’d had a tough year heath wise, which combined with terrible family tragedy, forced her to think about her priorities.
“It just makes you think, life’s too short. It’s just way too short,” she said, revealing she’d pushed her five-year plan forward.
“I’ve given everything to radio over 21 years, and 15 years here on the [Gold] Coast, but then I sacrificed my personal life because of that, because you give everything, so for the first time in my life I’ve put myself first, ahead of radio, and we’re so excited.”
She said she was leaving on a high and doing it her way.
“I want to go before I’m too tired or I’m too old to actually enjoy this next phase of my life.”
The next phase, she revealed, includes moving to Flinders Island off the coast of Tasmania
At the end of 2022, she said, her and her husband will launch a community radio station for the island.
Brousard will finish up with the Gold Coast’s 92.5 Triple M on December 10.
SCA has not yet revealed her replacement.
