Philip Brady’s emotional farewell to 3AW Nightline listeners
Melbourne radio veteran Philip Brady has signed off for the final time as host of 3AW’s longest-running show.
The 80-year-old and co-host Simon Owens farewelled Nightline listeners with a two-hour show on Thursday (Sep 26), taking dozens of calls from fans and friends.
They signed off at the stroke of midnight with the last word left to Brady, who was at the helm of the program for almost three decades.
“Gee, I’d better say something profound, something like .. I know, see you Sunday night for Remember When.”
As Brady alluded to, while he’s called time on his nightly show, he’ll be back on Sunday nights as co-host of 3AW’s Remember When program.
Nightline is being replaced by John Stanley, who’ll broadcast into Melbourne from Sydney, starting Monday night.
His show is being expanded and will now be on air from 8pm to midnight, Monday to Thursday.
