Gus Worland is leaving Triple M Sydney Breakfast
Television and radio favourite Gus Worland is leaving Breakfast radio after 10 years with Triple M Sydney.
Worland broke the news himself during an emotional farewell on-air today: “It’s going to be bloody hard because I love you guys and I love talking to Sydney. I never thought I’d get a gig on radio, let alone one for so long.”
With plans to spend more time on the mental health foundation for men he established in 2018, Gotcha 4 Life, Worland’s last day with Triple M will be November 8.
“Breakfast radio has played such a massive role in not only my life but also my family’s. I’ve met some lifelong friends and I wouldn’t change one thing,” said Worland.
“To wake up Sydney each morning, have a few laughs, and report the stories that matter, has been a true pleasure. It’s now time for me to step down from my radio commitments to spend more time on my mental health foundation Gotcha 4 Life.”
Worland isn’t leaving Triple M completely, however, with head of Triple M Mike Fitzpatrick revealing a revival of the station’s famous Deadset Legends show slated for next year.
“His idea to re-create Deadset Legends on Saturday mornings is an opportunity we jumped at,” said Fitzpatrick. “Gus, Wendell and Bolts – three true legends to keep Sydney across all the sport they need to know about to start the weekend.”
Worland will be joined on a panel with legendary NRL and Rugby Union dual international, Wendell Sailor, and 325-game Sydney Swans player and two-time premiership winner, Jude Bolton.
“I’m glad to be able to stay with the MMMs to talk about one of my lifelong passions, sport. And to do so with two sporting legends in Wendell and Jude,” added Worland.
Worland was an inaugural member of The Grill Team with Stuart McGill and Mark Geyer in 2009 and this year joined Lawrence Mooney, Jess Eva and anchor Chris Page on Moonman in the Morning where he’s continued to be a much-loved part of the team.
Worland’w co-host, Lawrence Mooney, said: “Gus Worland is a big, beautiful man that exudes a joy for life. It’s a great energy to be around and I’ve loved working with him.”
