Triple M launched its Hot Breakfast radio show.

Hosts Eddie McGuire, Luke Darcy, Tony Moclair and Mieke Buchan debuted their new show with guests Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard and John Brumby. Interviewees were Nick Maxwell, captain of Collingwood Football Club, and Rodney Eade, Western Bulldogs’ coach.

Alongside interviews, the show will regularly feature ‘Eddie-torials’. In his inaugural Eddie-torial, McGuire discussed solutions to Melbourne’s prominent inner-city violence.

“We want people to know it’s not about pushing agendas, it’s not about me or Collingwood or Channel Nine, it’s about the Triple M listeners. If you have an issue, you can come to us,” explained McGuire.

“We want to talk to the key people in town, not necessarily prosecuting them but we want answers and solutions.

Mediaweek described the launch as possibly the best radio show launch across the past 10 years.
