It’s been nine years since Ambrose left Australia to race in the NASCAR top tier series.

“Time to pull up stumps here in America an come on home,” Marcos Ambrose told Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast.

“My kids are getting old enough to want to get them back there and my racing certainly has flattened off enough to feel like I’ve got as far as I can.”

However Ambrose’s return home is great news for Aussie V8 Supercar fans.

“The best news of all though is that I’ve got a new deal down there with a new alliance between Dick Johnson Racing and one of the global motorsport juggernauts Team Penske are going to work together in 2015 and I’m going to be their driver.”

The Bungling Moreland Mayor On The Hot Breakfast

Mayor of Moreland Lambros Tapinos blames red tape for CCTV delay.

 

The Moreland City Council has come under fire following revelations they had failed to install security cameras that were promised in the wake of Jill Meagher's murder almost two years ago.

The  Council received $250,000 from the Victorian government as part of the plans to install the cameras in Sydney Road, Brunswick.

Moreland Mayor Lambros Tapinos joined the Hot Breakfast to discuss the apparent shortcomings.

It's fair to say that the Mayor's answers were not held in the highest regard by Hot Breakfast listeners:

Jimmy Barnes Forced To Withdraw From Hot Breakfast Grand Final Eve Party

Barnsey underwent back surgery last week and has been advised by doctors to rest.


Jimmy Barnes has been forced to cancel his performance at the Hot Breakfast Grand Final Eve Party.

Doctors have advised the Aussie Rock icon to rest after undergoing elective back surgery last week.

It's been a busy few months for Barnes with his new album '30:30 Hindsight' debuting at number 1 in Australia.

We wish Barnsey a speedy recovery.

PRESS RELEASE FROM LIBERATION MUSIC:

Liberation Music regret to inform that upon doctor’s advice, Jimmy Barnes has been ordered to withdraw from upcoming promotional commitments in celebration of his #1 album 30:30 Hindsight (out now through Liberation Music).
 
First entering hospital on September 6 for elective back surgery, Jimmy Barnes has suffered further complications and setbacks as a result and has been strongly advised by his doctors to rest.
 
Having now undergone surgery five times in the past eight days, Jimmy has decided to fight them no more and has unfortunately had to agree to postpone all promotional commitments for the next ten days.
 
Jimmy said with typical humour:
 
“30 years of back breaking work broke my back! But seriously I’m incredibly grateful for the many messages I’ve received from fans and also the fantastic media support but I hate missing live shows more than anything and the doctors have told me very clearly that I need to rest before the start of the tour in two weeks’ time so that is my focus”.
 
This recovery time will allow Jimmy to be in the best possible position to do what he does best – bring his music to fans across the country on live stages from Albany to Warrnambool and everywhere in between! The 30:30 Hindsight tour begins on Wednesday 1 October in Shoalhaven, New South Wales and continues for the remainder of the year.
 
Not only do the doctors have Jimmy’s back but all of the Mushroom Group do as well – we wish him the very best for his recovery.

Well, the adverse affect of Tinder's influence on the dating scene may be being felt in the Australian sex industry.

"My complex, intricate network of sources tell me that there are rumblings (that) the adult/escort/brothel industry is being adversely affected by Tinder,” Mick Molloy said on Triple M’s Hot Breakfast.

"It’s becoming apparent that Tinder is now affecting the sex trade because it’s becoming so easy," he said.

"Guys who would have previously gone 'Ok well that’s that then, I’m not going home empty handed, I’ll now swing by the knock shop’ are now actually swiping right and picking up on the way home."

However, not all people are using Tinder as seriously as others, here some of the funniest Tinder jokes.

AFL Acting On Fixture Issues

AFL Boss Gillon McLachlan on Triple M's Hot Breakfast.

 

Footy fans can rest assured the AFL are working to improve on 2014’s much-maligned AFL fixture.

Attendances have slipped noticeably at Melbourne based games this season with the league  hatching a plan to gets fans back to the football.

Speaking with Eddie McGuire, Mick Molloy and Luke Darcy on the Hot Breakfast, AFL Boss Gillon McLachlan says a number of changes have already been locked in.

"Two big changes for next year and hopefully three. The fixture will look different Ed, focusing on attendance rather than broadcasting and I’ve said it will look more like 1985 (than 2014)," McLachlan said.

"We are focusing on taking away the barriers for people to get to the football. Whether it be reserve seat issues and others,"

"And hopefully we are working with the clubs and the MCG and Etihad to deliver on the match day experience."

McLachlan also spoke about the always hotly debated Grand Final entertainment after Tom Jones, Ed Sheeran and Olivia Newton John were all confirmed earlier in the week.

"We’ve offered a lot of money to a lot of artists and they don’t want to do it. I think Meatloaf has made everyone terrified," McLachlan joked.
