Triple M's new overnight show, a real Bona fide talk show

Tuesday 29 November, 2016

Luke Bona will host a new national overnight show on Triple M, beginning Monday December 12. 

The show will see Luke cover Australia, from Cairns to Melbourne, Coffs to Adelaide.
 
Luke has survived radio for 38 years, commencing his career at 2GB as a 16-year-old office boy in 1978. Most recently Luke has worked for the Macquarie Radio Network, achieving the #1 spot overnight on 3AW. Luke's talk radio pedigree is without doubt, and it will open a whole new world to overnight radio - FM talkback!
 
Triple M's Head of Content Mike Fitzpatrick said, "We put the call out a few months ago asking for people to pitch shows. There were a few interesting ideas, and Luke stood out as an opportunity we couldn't miss. He grew up in Sydney, cut his teeth in regional radio and with his indigenous heritage he really understands our country. He also has a genuine passion for rock music."
 
Luke Bona said "I love the radio environment and connecting with people. When I last did overnights I was talking to people all over Australia. From the woman who ran a sugarcane farm in Cairns, to the bloke who brewed beer in Geelong. Now I can do it and play Led Zeppelin at the same time! Plus, I've been listening to Triple M since Uncle Doug. It's a dream come true."
 
Luke can be heard in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide from midnight on Monday December 12, and will commence on the rest of the Triple M network across Australia from January 9.

Am enjoying listening to you on Triple M. I have 1 question for you though:

Could you not come up with a closing tune of your own, as you are using the one that Keith McGowan used on 3AW for as long as I can remember when he was doing overnights.
Regards
