Rex Morris heads to Triple M Sydney as new content director
Rex Morris is making the move to Triple M Sydney, appointed the station’s new content director.
The Triple M Brisbane CD is moving to Sydney after several successful years further north, having taken the station to the top of the ratings in that time.
Morris replaces Jamie Angel in the position, after the latter recently moved to host 2DayFM’s new music-driven Breakfast show.
Triple M network head Mike Fitzpatrick made the announcement, saying “It’s really exciting to have Rex join our Sydney team.
“He has successfully led Triple M Brisbane’s content for two years and during that time he’s had three changes to breakfast including: losing Lawrence Mooney, hiring Nick Cody, losing Robin Bailey and hiring Margaux Parker.”
“Amidst all these changes, he has led the team and the station from single figures to a #1 radio station,” said Fitzpatrick.
“Even now the station and breakfast show remains in double figures with record audience numbers.”
Morris began his career at SCA almost three decades ago in 1990, and was first promoted to a content director role in 1996. He’s held roles including Triple M head of music operations, and was appointed Triple M Brisbane CD in March of 2018.
He also owns Resonate Broadcasting, which owns over 10 radio stations in Australia as well as four licenses in Hawaii via Resonate Hawaii.
“Triple M Sydney is on the path to something great, with the breakfast show and station overall producing some great results and with a fantastic off-air team in place. Rex is perfectly positioned to take the station and the team to the next stage,” Fitzpatrick added.
For his part, Morris said; “I am passionate about Triple M and its place in the hearts of our 40+ audience with our rock focus. I’m also thrilled to be joining the Sydney team with Triple M’s amazing heritage in the city and its potential to grow.
“While I’m sad to be leaving such a fantastic team in Brisbane, I’m looking forward to joining the Sydney team to do great things.”
