Ray Hadley offers Matty Johns a job after quitting Triple M

Matthew ‘Matty’ Johns may have said goodbye to breakfast radio, but Ray Hadley can reveal where his mate’s career is headed next.

Johns, who’s spent eight years with Triple M’s The Grill Team, has hung up the headphones today.

But Ray can reveal he’s offered the former rugby league star a VERY important job.

“I can tell you we’ve already been in negotiations and he will, as of Monday, be permanently placed between 9am and midday at the Galston Gorge.”

For years Matty and The Grill Team have mercilessly bagged Ray’s regular updates on overlength trucks causing havoc at the gorge.

The personal joke has led to Ray appearing on Triple M several times, invariably, at his own expense.

“We’ve equipped him with a two-way radio, he won’t need to get there before 9 o’clock so he can have a little sleep in,” says Ray.

“So he hasn’t actually gone into retirement, he’s just retired from getting up really, really early.”
