Merrick …. And Australia
Merrick Watts returns to Triple M with his new drive offering Merrick …. And Australia
We caught up with Group Content Director for Triple M Mike Fitzpatrick for quick wrap on the new show and some of what is planned so far.
Blair: When’s Mez back on Triple M?
Fitzy: He’ll start Feb 2nd
Blair: Across the entire Triple M Network?
Fitzy: Merrick …. And Australia will be on every Triple M across the country and all of our Local Works stations. He won’t be on MIX945 Perth but will be on the WA Local Works stations.
Blair: We know that Merrick is running solo what’s the plan with guests and stuff?
Fitzy: Along the way Merrick will be joined by his industry mates including as well as journalists, experts, actors, musos and probably guests who are flogging stuff. Anyone from Lawrence Mooney and Ray Martin to Phil Jamieson.
Blair: What can we expect – will it be different?
Fitzy: It’ll be good. At least Merrick told me it would be, and I believe him. It will also be different to the Highway Patrol.
I’m excited to have Mez back where he belongs and so I asked him where he's been since leaving Triple M in 2013. Mez told me “Nowhere. I was right here at Triple M the whole time. We all just had a very funny dream for a year. Now never ask me that again.”
