Laura Bouchet has been appointed executive producer of the new Triple M Sydney breakfast show.
The move is a blow to ARN Sydney which just last month saw Bruno Bouchet, Laura’s husband, depart as EP of The Kyle and Jackie O Show.
Also last month, ARN promoted Laura Bouchet to assistant content director of WSFM in addition to her role as executive producer of Jonesy & Amanda’s breakfast show.
Award winning radio producer Laura will take over Lawrence Mooney’s new show Moonman in the Morning.
After 11 and a half years as EP of WSFM’s Jonesy and Amanda breakfast show, Laura, who is a two-time Australian Commercial Radio Award (ACRA) winner for Best Show Producer, will EP Triple M Sydney’s breakfast show with Mooney plus Jess Eva, Gus Worland and Chris Page.
Triple M’s head of content Mike Fitzpatrick is thrilled to have secured one of Australia’s best and most experienced producers for Sydney breakfast.
“Laura has a fantastic radio brain and is well respected in the industry. I can’t think of a better person to help build and drive our new show. It’s quite different from our breakfast show of the last eight years and Laura has exactly what Lawrence, Jess and Gus need to steer them to success.”
Bouchet will commence in her new role in March.
