Friday 25 November 2022 02:38 AM Jess Eva's surprising replacement after her breakfast show was axed with just ... trends now
Comedian Mick Molloy will join Mark 'MG' Geyer on Triple M's new breakfast show in 2023: Mick and MG in the Morning, following The MG, Jess and Pagey show being axed with just one day's notice.
Jess Eva announced on Thursday that The MG, Jess & Pagey show won't continue next year, and that Friday will be the 'final show', while Chris Page already announced his exit from the breakfast show back in October.
Former Network 10 news presenter Natarsha Belling also joins the team as a Newsreader.
'Mick and MG in the Morning will bring Triple M listeners a fresh new Breakfast offering but also the familiar voice of Molloy and his legendary radio antics,' Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) said in a statement released on Friday.
'Well-known and respected newsreader Natarsha Belling will join the show as newsreader and will banter with the best of them to keep the boys on their toes.'
Meanwhile, Molloy said: 'I'm excited to be returning to my spiritual home at Triple M and look forward to getting amongst it, in the Sydney breakfast radio scene.

'After a year away from the radio waves I wanted a new challenge and Sydney is the perfect opportunity. I'm also looking forward to working with MG and swapping stories.'
'And if this doesn't work out, I'll throw my hat in the ring at The Project. I hear there's an opening,' he joked of the Channel 10 news show's mass exodus.
MG said in the statement that he is excited to be working with Molloy in the new year.
'I cannot wait to work with Micky, who I regard as radio royalty. One of us owns a pub, the other owns a gym. The "cross-over" after work activities will be a hoot!' he said.
