Triple M Central Coast loses Brekky host Mandy Coolen

Former Assistant Editor
2GO, SCA, Triple M Central Coast

Central Coast’s 107.7 Triple M is saying goodbye to Mandy Coolen.

Mandy has spent the last two years on Breakfast at the station, which recently rebranded from 2GO.

She returned to the Central Coast station in 2018 alongside comedian Akmal Saleh, who was then replaced by Rob Palmer for 2019.

SCA Central Coast group content director Peter Yiamarelos thanked Mandy for her time at the station, and wished her the best for the future.

“Her passion, commitment and professional approach to the show has been outstanding and we wish her all the best for her future projects,” he said.

SCA Central Coast GM Kristen Budd added; “Mandy’s contribution across her tenure with Triple M has extended way beyond her on-air remit.

“She is an incredibly dedicated and prominent influencer in our local community who has made a considerable impact in her time with us.

“Mandy’s can-do attitude and drive is infectious, and she is someone I will personally miss having around the office”.

Mandy farewelled listeners on Friday. “Today’s been my last show on Triple M. A little bit sad about that,” she said.

“You’re an absolute professional,” responded Rob. “You’ve welcomed me into your family of radio so wonderfully. You’ve been a motivator, a teacher, a mentor… I’ll be lost without you.”

“Last year I was on air with a guy named Akmal… what a mad thing he is, that was a lot of fun. I want to say thank you to everyone here at SCA in Gosford.

“What an amazing family of people.”

Just wondering why you would go through all that backlash for two years worth of two unknown and unpolished shows. Wouldn’t you have let the local personalities bring in the new brand considering the numbers haven’t moved at all. Maybe a good one for the PD’s development?

The article makes it seem like this was a decision that was made by Mandy? Her Instagram states that it wasn’t her choice and it appears her radio days may be over.

Terrible decision Triple M.
