Triple M Network

Lucky it wasn’t Townsville


That ‘Elavator from Hell’ competition currently on Triple M ,you have to guess 4 mystery voices ,is that on all metro Triple Ms ,does anyone know?


I can confirm it’s on in Melbourne too. Sounds like it’s national as Ugly Phil seems to host it from Sydney when ever they have a contestant guessing.


I just looked at the terms and conditions, which state it is on in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. There is only one first prize of $20,000. Seems similar to Smooth Stars where the same competition is on the Sydney and Melbourne stations.


Today I heard Becko on air,isn’t he the morning announcer on Triple M Sydney? He was filling in for Ugly Phil this arvo.I remember him being on air on B105 in the late 90s .


Which is why Fitzy & Wippa, Kyle & Jackie O and Em, Ed & Grant are all on similar money, given they’re flagship shows for their respective networks and a main driver of revenue… and also why Nova, ARN and SCA’s overall revenue is almost identical…


I’m not saying that a station can’t be profitable when they’re not #1 - of course they can, as evidenced by Nova. But plenty certainly still care about it - including advertisers. Yes, direct target demographics matter, but they certainly matter a lot more to those who aren’t number 1…


You can shot me down if you would like.

We have been streaming Triple M Brisbane over the past week and musically I wish some of the regional Triple M stations with 3 or more commercial stations in their area would adopt their format. I think it would work well in Cairns, Mackay and Rockhampton. They play a great mix of new and old rock music and even chucked in some awesome borderline pop/rock 80’s songs like Blue Monday - New Order, You Belong To The City - Glenn Frey and Don’t Believe Anymore - Icehouse which mixed in well with their rockier songs. The down side is a lot of talk and adds, but I guess most of the metro radio stations are like that. :slight_smile:


Between 12 & 3pm AEST, Triple M Brisbane carries the same programming/music log as its Sydney & Melbourne station. Obviously, I’m not including networked talk-based programming such as Kennedy Molloy & Luke Bona.

As for you wishing for some regional Triple M stations to adopt the music format of its Brisbane station, I agree with you. I wouldn’t mind 2GO adopting that format, as it would provide a musical point-of-difference from Star 104.5, as well as from WS & Smooth, which are both female-skewing adult music stations.

I agree with you about the Triple M Brisbane playlist. It’s much improved. The problem is the amount of talk, sport and ads.


I’m not gonna lie, I’m not really liking Triple M Melbourne’s new wider mix of rock… I preferred it when they played Everlong- Foo Fighters five times a day, the Hoodoo Gurus- What’s My Scene, Revolution Radio- Green Day or any good Green Day song and Power and the Passion- Midnight Oil, what happened to Triple M playing good Classic Rock, not these songs that would most likely be also playing on Gold/WS


Don’t worry, it’s Triple M, they’ll change their music format again in a few months.


True, I mean You’ll Never Know What They’ll Play Next


Khe Sanh, probably.


If that was the case, they’d play stuff like:

The Ketchup Song
Nursery rhymes
Random podcasts
Test tones
People farting
The sound of couples going at it


Baby Shark (do do do do do do)


I’ve been listening to 2MMM more over the past few weeks because of the wider, more “gold” rock hits.

Dean Lewis can @#$%$#@%@#$ get to hell though , it’s bad enough hearing him on the regional feed 10x a day let alone on the Ms


I actually prefer listening to the regional Triple Ms when I can get them. A much wider variety , maybe because the add a few top 40 hits in the mix it doesn’t sound all the same.


Currently playing Morgan Evan’s new song “Day Drunk”. More a country pop song than a part of the “wide rock mix” I would have thought.




On 3MMM I’ve noticed that during Kennedy Molloy and also during promos they are using the tagline “Made in Melbourne”.

Have ratings in the home city been that underwhelming that they have to remind listeners that although it’s a national show it’s still made locally? TV networks do similar though, GTV9 have always put “Made in Melbourne” stamps on all their local productions.
