Further to the earlier news saying that the Triple M drive show, Merrick & The Highway Patrol, were on the way out (here) ….. turns out it was true.

Merrick Watts, Julian Schiller and Rachel Corbett joined the network at the beginning of 2012, Merrick coming from Nova 96.9.

The show aired on the Triple M network as well as various regionals through the SCA network.

Head of Triple M, Mike Fitzpatrick said:

“We’ve made some successful changes to the Triple M network this year and now we’re going to build on those changes by creating a real alternative to the drive time line-ups across the country.

"While we are excited by the prospect of creating something new and different in drive next year, we are sad to be saying goodbye to Mez, Jules and Rach who are hard-working talent and much loved."

Watts said, “I have enjoyed every second of the last two years on air with Rachel and Jules, it is disappointing that it will be coming to an end but I am planning to make the most of the next couple of months together on air.”

The show will stay on-air until the end of the year.
