New Breakfast Show Launched
Auckland’s More FM is launching a new breakfast show this week.
Jeremy Corbett, host of the show for the last 16 years, is joined by afternoon hosts Joe Cotton and Jesse Mulligan.
Jeremy, Jesse and Joe will be the new force in Auckland breakfast radio.
Programme Director Rodger Clamp says: ‘I’m excited to have Jeremy Corbett working with Joe and Jesse.  If they have half the laughs on air as they do in the office everyday, I’m sure our listeners will enjoy this new show.”
Joe Cotton was a former member of Truebliss and also won the reality show Pop’s Ultimate Star.  She has also starred on C4’s Jono’s New Show and has previously worked on radio station The Edge and joined More FM in December last year.
“Obviously I’m totally excited/nervous/amazed....I feel like a VERY lucky girl to be presented with such an amazing opportunity. I get to work with Jeremy who is hilarious and such a pro... (don’t print that though.. it'll totally go to his head...) and I have the added bonus of husband #2 Jesse, he's like my very best girlfriend who just happens to have man bits.”
Jesse Mulligan is a stand up comedian and actor.  He was at More FM Wellington for a number of years prior to moving to London.  He joined More FM Auckland at the beginning of this year.
“Jeremy, Joe & I were meant to spend all week planning, but the three of us get on so well, it's really felt like a holiday. We're all bursting with new ideas for the show and we can't wait to get on air and try them out."
Original host Jeremy Corbett is looking forward to the new show: “For me it's a bit like Joe and Jesse are a new pair of shoes. Funny shoes. With colourful laces... and having worn them around the house a bit I'm now very excited to wear them out.. in public... Obviously with pants and stuff too.
I can't wait to pass on my vast broadcasting knowledge to Joe and Jesse. In fact, just this morning I was talking at them for a few hours and they were lapping it up. They had obviously been celebrating the new show last night, because they both fell asleep.. Man! They missed some real gems.”
Jeremy, Jesse and Joe are on 91.8 More FM Auckland, weekdays between 6 and 10am.
