Moonman leaves Triple M Sydney breakfast, takes legal action against SCA
Lawrence Mooney is off the Triple M breakfast show as of today.
Speculation has been mounting that Mooney was on his way out since he was a no show on the program last week.
Mooney began a regular guest on the Triple M Sydney and Melbourne breakfast shows then joined Triple M Brisbane’s breakfast show in 2016, moving to Sydney in 2019, with Jess Eva and Chris Page.
Mark Geyer, who was set to join the show next year, has now begun early in Mooney’s place.
Employment and media lawyer John Laxon, of Laxon Lex is acting for Lawrence Mooney against Southern Cross Austereo Services Pty Ltd
“My client has a contract which runs through to the end of next year, which SCA has brought to an end.
“The terms of that contract were drafted by SCA and were bargained for and agreed to by my client. He will hold SCA to those terms. All my client asks is that SCA honour the contract and observe the contractual arrangements which they put in place,” said Laxon in a statement to Radio Today.
