Triple M to turn off all mics THIS MONDAY

sca 3 mins read
The first of a series of images Triple M is releasing for NO TALK DAY which happens this MONDAY

THIS MONDAY - JULY 3 - the mics go off at Triple M 


THIS Monday July 3, Triple M microphones across the country will stay silent for Triple M’s fifth annual No Talk Day - there’ll be no Breakfast show banter, no announcers, no news or traffic reports and no ads...


Over 12 powerful hours from 6am to 6pm, Triple M, with support from Beyond Blue, will create space to encourage listeners and friends to have a courageous conversation around men’s mental health and suicide.  All 45 stations across the Triple M network, from Townsville to Tassie, Perth to Parramatta and everywhere between, will be involved.


IN ADDITION, between 6pm and 7pm this week, Triple M counts down to No Talk Day, by replacing all announcers for the hour across the country with messaging encouraging listeners to check-in on their mental health, and focus on the importance of building mental fitness.


Triple M has also released the long-form mental health discussion called The Courageous Talk Roundtable.  Special guests Chelsea Frawley, mental health advocate and daughter of AFL great Danny “Spud” Frawley who was battling depression when he died, First Nations performer Mitch Tambo, clinical psychologist and anxiety specialist Dr Jodie Lowinger, and SCA transgender employee Andrea Cole who has worked at Triple M for more than 35 years, talk frankly about their own experiences with mental health, sharing advice on how to best start the conversation with others.  It’s powerful stuff.


Watch it here.

Over the past four years, Triple M has dedicated a combined 2,400 hours encouraging others to have these important conversations.


Along the way Triple M has enlisted the help of the music industry’s biggest names … Dave Grohl, Bruce Springsteen, Flea from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Daniel Johns, Midnight Oil, Dave Gleeson, The Killers, John Butler, Jimmy Barnes, and Rob Thomas, as well as listeners from all walks of life.


Plus, Triple M’s Mark Geyer, Wendell Sailor, Jude Bolton, Gus Worland, Greg ‘Marto’ Martin, Mark “Roo” Ricciuto, Chris “Ditts” Dittmar, Spida Everett, Ali Plath and Sean Flanagan will share their frank and lived experiences about when they, or someone they know, was living with a mental health issue.


Shaun Gough, Triple M Melbourne Content Manager and founding No Talk Day advocate, understands it takes courage to talk about mental health.


“Triple M’s No Talk Day is when we ask listeners across the country to ‘check-in’ on their own mental health or someone they care about and think about having a potentially life-saving conversation if that’s what’s needed; to tell someone their story, or genuinely ask a mate how they’re travelling. These are conversations that matter, they can save lives,” he said.


Think this doesn’t apply to you? It does! Beyond Blue reports:


  • About 65,000 people attempt suicide in Australia each year.
  • Nine people die every day from suicide and seven of those deaths are men.
  • Men are statistically less likely to seek help for several reasons including stoic beliefs and values, self-stigma, or a sense that “I should be able to deal with this myself”.
  • Research shows that 8 out of 10 people who were suicidal found the support of a mate helpful.


Triple M’s No Talk Day can be heard on Triple M’s 45 FM stations around the country THIS Monday 3 July and via the LiSTNR app.

Beware charming conmen offering deals too good to be true

This Scams Awareness Week, homeowners are reminded to shut the door on scammers who pose as legitimate and honest tradespeople, following four recent complaints to NSW Fair Trading about travelling conmen. Nomad con artists regularly move across Australian borders, targeting NSW communities, offering services like cleaning driveways, painting and sealing roofs and home repairs. They may work individually or as part of a larger group. These expert fraudsters use convincing tactics to trick customers into believing they are honest and licensed tradespeople. But the charm quickly disappears when they demand money up front and then disappear, leaving their work unfinished…

Building approvals hit five-month high but remain too low

30 November 2023 A temporary pause in interest rate hikes has seen October building approvals rise to five-month highs but year to date figures remain at their lowest levels since 2013. Master Builders Australia CEO Denita Wawn cautioned, with interest rate rises back on the move and a damaging industrial relations Bill before Parliament, positive gains could be quickly eroded. Providing analysis on the monthly data, chief economist Shane Garrett said the total number of new home building approvals rose to 14,223 in seasonally-adjusted terms during October. “This was 7.5 per cent up on the previous month and represents the…
