Mediaweek Industry Awards: Best Drive Radio Show

• Winner: Kennedy Molloy

The Triple M army have also come out in force this award’s season for the SCA network’s drive show Kennedy Molloy.

The show hosted by Jane Kennedy and Mick Molloy trails some of its FM competitors in the metro markets but to the Triple M audience it is a must-listen.

Ratings at the end of 2019 were mixed with the show perhaps most competitive all people in Brisbane and Perth with good core demo numbers elsewhere. The program has good enough numbers to be the #1 drive show for men 25-54.

The show secured the services of executive producer Jay Mueller in 2019 who has been on his own radio journey recently. He is best known for his work as EP with Melbourne radio’s 3AW and then The Hot Breakfast before more recently working at SEN with Gerard Whateley.

The Kennedy Molloy program will be taking part in the Triple M 40th anniversary celebrations this year. Head of the Triple M network Mike Fitzpatrick said: “We have some exciting plans to celebrate our 40th birthday at Triple M, there will be no mid-life crisis here! We’re embracing 40 and will continue to bring listeners what they know and love. We have a brilliant talent line-up this year and they are what makes Triple M an iconic brand, along with the music and sports coverage that we have become known and loved for.”

Meanwhile the drive show that can claim to be #1 across the metro markets with all people, Nova’s Kate, Tim and Marty, ranked a very close second in our readers’ vote.

Taking third spot was another FM drive staple, Hit Network’s Hughesy and Kate, now rebranded for 2020 as Hughesy and Ed with Ed Kavalee.
