Blewett joins Adelaide drive showBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Friday, 15th January 2021 at 3:43pm
Triple M Adelaide’s The Rush Hour duo of Andrew Jarman and Bernie Vince is now a trifecta with Greg “Blewy” Blewett in the booth, starting 18 January.
Triple M Adelaide pencilled in the trio based on Blewett’s performance with Jars and Vince on weekend show Dead Set Legends over the past three years.
“I can’t wait to join Bernie and Jars for The Rush Hour this year. I get to talk sport, have a laugh and hang out with a couple of legends,” said Blewett.
He is also a regular commentator on Channel Seven’s cricket coverage during the Australian summer.

Jane Kennedy signs off from Triple MBy Jonas Lopez in Media News on Friday, 15th January 2021 at 3:32pm
Triple M’s Kennedy Molloy tandem on drive is history, with Jane Kennedy making her exit.
She stated to Southern Cross Austereo management that her work/life balance had become untenable, especially with the responsibilities of raising five teenagers. The Kennedy Molloy show had been on air for three years.
Co-host Mick Molloy said he is ready to continue the show alone starting next week.
“Jane Kennedy is the funniest, smartest, toughest chick I know. If she says she’s got too much on her plate then that’s the end of the argument. Jane will be missed by me, our team and anyone who enjoys listening to cracking radio. I guess I will have to chalk this up as yet another significant relationship with a woman that didn’t last as long as I would have liked,” he said.

Lipson ending US appointment earlyBy Elliott Richardson in Media News on Friday, 15th January 2021 at 3:05pm
Lipson said the COVID-19 was a concern for him and his family, and with another child due in April it was too much of a risk to return to the United States.
He had taken up the US bureau chief position in late 2019 after spending time as the ABC's Indonesia correspondent.
He has spent the majority of his time in the US covering politics as well as the coronavirus.
Lipson returned to Australia in December 2020 with the intention of heading back to America to finish his posting but will now work in a new role yet to be decided.
Some personal news: My time in Washington DC has come to an end for now. We have another baby due in April and decided to have it in Australia. I was due to return to DC next week for a final stint but... 1/..— David Lipson (@davidlipson) January 14, 2021

Twitter round-up: CESBy Elliott Richardson in Media News on Friday, 15th January 2021 at 3:09pm
It seemed some companies were taking care of journos on the caffeine front as Leigh Stark mentioned he'd been gifted caffeine ladened drinks and snacks. He also posted a timely reminder that pitching content unrelated to CES probably isn't the best idea.
Some journalists though enjoyed being able to cover the event from home, safe from the COVID plagued United States.
Meanwhile Adam Turner had to find a substitute for his usual American BBQ joint.
PRs: if you're sending press releases this week that don't have to do with #CES2021, follow them up next week or just wait until next week to send. They're just going to get lost in the pile, folks.— Leigh :) Stark (@Leighlo) January 12, 2021
The #CES from home diet. It's not healthy, but it is very caffeinated. Thanks t
