Introducing the latest addition to the Triple M Melbourne team.
She’s been in the business for a quarter of a century, has been nominated for an Astra Award, did radio in London with Ricky Gervais and Russell Brand, presented TV on the BBC, ITV and MTV UK and has even been Courtney Love’s personal assistant.
Now, Jane Gazzo, television presenter, music journo and radio broadcaster joins Triple M Melbourne as our new morning presenter.
Melbourne girl Jane began her impressive broadcasting career at the age of 16 with a stint at 3RRR and then went on to present nationally on Triple J and the ABC TV cult TV show Recovery.
Her big break came in 1999 when she tried her luck in London, landing a radio gig at X-FM where she worked with Gervais and Brand. She went on later to work at both the BBC and Capital FM while also hosting various TV Shows.
In 2007 she returned home to Australia and took on the role of full time music presenter on Foxtel’s Channel [V], later moving to the MAX Music channel.
Head of Triple M, Mike Fitzpatrick said: “I'm excited to have Jane join Triple M. She's a passionate music fan, a passionate Melburnian and a passionate Bloods supporter. Two out of three I guess. Needless to say, given she’s joining Triple M, Jane will probably have to be called Gazza on air.”
Jane Gazzo said: "I am extremely excited to be joining Melbourne's Triple M and can't wait to get to work! People who know me, know how much I love my music and to be back on the radio in my home town on the home of modern rock and killer classics is just mind blowing. The bloke who signed Oasis once said to me, 'When rock is female, it only gets better' - I hope Melbourne is ready!"
Jane starts the morning shift on Triple M from April 7.
With the arrival of Jane Gazzo to Triple M Melbourne, Australia’s own “DANGEROUS” Dave Williams will be the new anchor of Triple M’s Rush Hour!
Dave is one of Australia’s best radio presenters and his skillset will now extend to drive.
He'll also host afternoons from March 16.
Welcome to the Triple M family, Jane! Great news Dangerous Dave!
