Triple M Perth announces Workday lineup: Dan Leach and Cat Lynch
Hit 92.9 in Perth will soon become Triple M Perth as Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) launches the radio brand in the Western Australian capital.
Current Hit 92.9 content director Tim Arnold will take on the same role at the new station, and has started unveiling his on-air lineup.
Mornings will be hosted by Dan ‘Leachy’ Leach. He joins from the Triple M family, having spent 15 years working with the brand as part of the regional Western Australian Team.
He will be followed by Cat Lynch in Afternoons who moves across from Triple M Sydney. She’s previously been part of the Hit 107 Breakfast team in Adelaide on Amos, Cat & Angus, and more recently has been part of the team putting together SCA’s news podcast via PodcastOne, The Briefing.
Arnold told Radio Today he was excited for the station to be coming together.
“I’m so excited to have people who already live and breathe the Triple M brand joining us in Perth to launch 92.9 Triple M. Both are incredibly talented broadcasters who know their rock back to front, know this town back to front, and I can’t wait to hear them on air saying ’92.9 Triple M Rocks Perth,’” he said.
SCA and Triple M Perth are yet to announce the key Breakfast lineup, however Radio Today revealed earlier that former co-host of 6PR Breakfast and current Mayor of Perth, Basil Zempilas, could be in line for the gig.
The Drive slot will be filled by the syndicated Kennedy Molloy show.
Sister station in Perth, Mix 94.5, which previously broadcast some Triple M content, will join SCA’s Hit Network.
Existing Breakfast program Clairsy, Matt & Kymba was set to continue on the rebranded station, however today it was announced Dean ‘Clairsy’ Clairs is moving on after 30 years with SCA.
He will be replaced by Pete Curulli, who has been part of the Xavier, Juelz & Pete show which finished up on Hit 92.9 today. SCA had previously said the trio would have “other exciting on-air roles in the business which will be announced soon”.
