Sheargold will continue The Marty Sheargold Show as national Afternoon Radio show and daily podcast on LiSTNR.

Marty Sheargold and Triple M have confirmed that Sheargold will step down from the 105.1 Triple M Melbourne Breakfast shift.

Sheargold has scaled back from the Breakfast shift, as Triple M states he continues to balance his commitments – including his stand-up comedy and appearing on the upcoming new season of Fisk.

Reflecting on his decision, Sheargold said: “Taking an extended break at the end of last year has reinforced the importance of spending more quality time with my family. As a result, I have made the decision to prioritise self-care, maintaining a better work/life balance and will not be returning to my Triple M Breakfast show.

“However, I will continue The Marty Sheargold Show podcast, along with the 3-4pm national Triple M show. I want to thank my immediate team and the network for their ongoing support and understanding. And I’d also like to thank the listeners for their loyalty to both the show and the station. Like them, I remain a Triple M fan.”

SCA chief content officer, Dave Cameron, said: “SCA supports Marty’s decision to rebalance his personal and work commitments, and we’d like to thank Marty and his team for creating a unique and hilarious Breakfast show for Melbourne since 2021.

“It is exciting however that our listeners will continue to hear Marty alongside his current team of Troy Ellis, Loren Barry, and Will Ralston across both the Triple M network as a national Afternoon radio show and on his fan-favourite daily podcast on LiSTNR, which regularly ranks prominently on the Australian Podcast Ranker.”

The Marty Sheargold Show will continue to be heard around the country, Monday to Friday from 3-4 pm on the Triple M network from mid-July, and on LiSTNR as a daily podcast.

In October 2023 Sheargold announced an extended break from his position, stating he was “exhausted mentally”. 

At the time he said: “I just wanted to let people know that I’ll be taking an extended break from work, with the very kind and compassionate permission of my employers, who have been generous in their understanding of my need for a break.”

In Survey 3 of 2024’s Radio Ratings, 105.1 Triple M recorded a 6.6% overall share.

In breakfast, it rose by 0.2 points to 5.9%, and also rose in Drive (2.0 points for an 8.7% share) and Evenings (3.7 points for a 6.9% share).

Details of the new 105.1 Triple M Melbourne Breakfast show will be announced soon.
