Roy and HG to leave Triple J

Thursday, 4 December, 2008

Australian radio station Triple J won’t be quite the same with news that long-time sports funny guys “Rampaging” Roy Slaven and HG Nelson will be leaving at the end of the year.

Triple J confirmed in a statement last night that after 22 years of presenting iconic programs such as This Sporting Life, Festival Of The Boot and Golden Ring Show, the pair have quit the station. Triple J manager Linda Bracken says they will be sadly missed.

Although I was not their most regular or dedicated listeners, I can’t remember a time Triple J was without the antics of Roy and HG… but as the maxim goes, nothing lasts forever, unless you start reading some of the comments left by their listeners.
