Extended break for Marty Sheargold


Triple M Melbourne Breakfast host Marty Sheargold has announced he is taking a longer break off air to look after his mental health.

Sheargold released a statement which read:

“I just wanted to let people know that I’ll be taking an extended break from work, with the very kind and compassionate permission of my employers, who have been generous in their understanding of my need for a break.”

“I think it’s important for people like myself who have a public voice to admit that I am exhausted mentally from my range of commitments across TV, radio and live shows, in an attempt to continue to remove some of the road blocks and stigma around mental health.”

“I need to set aside some time to get my work/life balance back into something that feels better than it has over the last couple of years. Thank you to everyone who has reached out, your support has been welcome and enriching. Talk soon, Marty.”

Troy Ellis filled in for Sheargold last week, with Anthony ‘Lehmo’ Lehmann on air this week.

SCA Chief Content Officer Dave Cameron says “SCA continues to support Marty’s request for personal leave to spend time with his family, and we look forward to having Marty back on Triple M soon.”
