Radio host Jess Eva has revealed that her Triple M radio show MG, Jess & Page has been officially axed.
Jess made the shocking announcement on Thursday morning that the show “will not continue in 2023”, in a move that comes just one year after Triple M unceremoniously sacked her co-host Lawrence Mooney, who hosted Moonman in the Morning alongside the former Block contestant.
“The MG, Jess & Pagey show will not continue in 2023, and you can tune in tomorrow for the final show,” Jess said on Thursday morning, adding, “We’re going to be in the Triple M family, which is lovely.”
Mark ‘MG’ Geyer added, “Tomorrow is going to be all about reflection. Tomorrow is going to be all about the year that we’ve had together.”
Jess added, “For me, I feel like the MG, Jess & Pagey show will never leave me, as I have a picture of MG on my arse.”
“I just adore ya … At the end of the day … If you can roll in here to a breakfast show and you pick up a couple of soulmates and then you roll back out again and you have a wine, how good’s living?”
She added that Chris Page, who announced his departure from Triple M Sydney back in October, would be returning for the final show on Friday.

In a statement, an SCA spokesperson said: “SCA has confirmed today on air that the current 104.9 Triple M Sydney Breakfast show will not return next year.
“An announcement regarding the Triple M Sydney Breakfast show for 2023 will be made in due course.”
It follows a series of lineup changes for the Triple M Breakfast slot over the past year, with Lawrence Mooney reportedly exiting the station following negotiations about his contract. He claimed that Mooney was taking his former employer to court to demand a year’s worth of pay in damages.
At the time, Mooney’s lawyer John Laxon released a statement that read: “My client has a contract which runs through to the end of next year, which SCA has brought to an end. The terms of that contract were drafted by SCA and were bargained for and agreed to by my client. He will hold SCA to those terms. All my client asks is that SCA honour the contract and observe the contractual arrangements which they put in place.”
