Tom and Olly extending to two new markets in 2018 (and they’ve got some questions)
Tom and Olly are set to return to the Triple M network in 2018 with their nightly show extending into two new markets .
From January 15, Tom & Olly Have Questions will be heard at night across Adelaide and Brisbane, as well as Sydney and Melbourne where they’ve been broadcasting throughout 2017.
The show is a unique take on talkback radio with Tom & Olly, two innocent wide eyed boys from ‘burbs, asking the big questions about life, the universe and everything.
“Have you ever been in a cult?”, “What did you get stuck inside you?” and “Amputees tell all.”
After being told their show would be returning to Triple M in 2018 Tom said, “Let’s be honest, we’re actually a terrible show. The only reason we’re still on air is because I’m gay and it fills a diversity quota!”
And Olly responded, “I’m also really lucky Tom is gay. He gives me such great advice about girls. They’re so complicated! But truly, we love this station, this time slot and our listeners so we are psyched to be back bigger in 2018.”
Tom Bainbridge and Oliver Morris met at school, where Olly convinced the former Big Brother intruder and professional reality tv auditioner Tom, that they should be on radio together.
After several fill in shows on SYN FM Melbourne, they were swept up in showbiz and the bright lights of Albury were calling.
Following two years of breakfast on Star 104.9, the boys were ‘let go’ after a serious of dubious on air stunts that included stripping at the premiere of Magic Mike XXL and interviewing Albury Mayor, Henk van de Venk.
Hired at Triple M Sydney and Melbourne as panel operators, the boys soon began opening the mics and asking questions between songs, a move that will see them broadcast across the network in 2018, 7-10pm weeknights in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane.
In the lead up to Christmas all four markets will get a taste of 2018 with Tom and Olly joining The Moonman (Lawrence Mooney) for Summer Breakfast from Monday December 11 to Friday December 22. The Moonman is all set to co-host Triple M’s Big Breakfast in Brisbane from 2018.
