Confirmed: Lawrence Mooney joins Triple M Sydney Breakfast

Former Assistant Editor

Triple M Sydney has unveiled its 2019 Breakfast lineup, with some new additions set to join the show.

Following the departure of Matty Johns, Lawrence ‘The Moonman’ Mooney is joining from #1 rating Triple M Brisbane Brekky show The Big Breakfast.

Mooney appears set to be at the centre of proceedings, with the new show to be called Moonman in the Morning.

As well as his recent work on radio in Brisbane and as a regular on Triple M Drive show Kennedy Molloy, Mooney is also known as the host of ABC TV show Dirty Laundry Live and as the winner of Best Show at The Sydney Comedy Festival 2015.

His Malcolm Turnbull character has recently sold out comedy shows across the country.

The team will also welcome Jess Eva from the 2018 season of The Block into a new-look lineup.

No stranger to radio, Jess has spent time hosting Breakfast on 91.9 Sea FM on the Sunshine Coast.

They’ll join Gus Worland, who in 2019 celebrates his 10th year on Triple M Sydney Breakfast, as well as show anchor, comedian and writer, Chris ‘Pagey’ Page.

We can’t just re-do the Grill Team,” said Triple M head of content Mike Fitzpatrick.

“It’s time to move on. This will be a real comedy and music show that gives Sydney a unique look at what’s happening in the city and plays the biggest rock hits.

“From Parramatta to Palm Beach, Cronulla to Castle Hill, this will be a show to make Sydney laugh.

“Lawrence is in career best form and has been honing his skills in Brisbane. Gus is a much loved part of our family and Jess has been doing breakfast radio on the Sunshine Coast for 6 years now, she’s a star of the future.”

Mooney says he is honoured to be given the opportunity.

“I’m actually pretty honoured to be doing breakfast in the biggest market in the country. I’m following in the footsteps of some big names at Triple M and that absolutely thrills me.”

Over summer and into the New Year, Triple M Sydney will continue to play ‘Rock’s Greatest Hits’, with their playlist expanding recently to include more music from the past 50 years.

After a decade of not listening to Triple M at breakfast because of its OTT footy content and general blokey-ness, I might start listening again.

This could be a good show.

Mooney and Jess are a couple of the funniest people going. I can’t wait to hear this magic.

I wonder who’ll be doing breakfast with Bar Rat at Sea FM Sunny Coast next year?
Interesting how none of the stories around this is mentioning that Jess has been doing breakfast radio FOREVER.

Jess and Moonman, that would be a show on it’s own! Cant wait to hear it.

Wow, after switching off the Grill Team for the past year or so I’m glad it’s getting a shake up.

Couldn’t stand that Emma Freedman putting the brakes on any interesting conversation and constantly repeating “at the moment” at the end of every second sentence when talking about a current event.

Let’s hope it does just as well as Loz, Michelle and Des from Mix Melbourne in the early 2000’s

Any ideas who will do Sea FM brekky next year in place of Jess?

No one listens to Triple M in Sydney anyway that’s why they are rating last.

Is this the Melbourne comic ? He broadcast his last Brisbane breakfast show from Melbourne so I suppose will do the same this year. Most of SCA Sydney programs come out of Melbourne – Ed, Carrie, Em, Grant, Kate, Hughesy isn’t there any good talent in Sydney ?

Thank the God’s!! Going back to what they did well. Play CLASSIC ROCK , you are not a sports calling station you are a music station particularly ROCK. You now have a new “old listener “back. Please try and keep me listening .

I know its not make or break but will Lawrence be working out of Melbourne like on his last show ? Being from Melbourne I get why no one likes moving to Sydney. Sorry to all those in Sydney !


See all
