SHARE

Panthers legend and South Penrith local Mark Geyer has shocked Triple M listeners by announcing he’s quitting early morning starts and leaving the popular Grill Team breakfast show.

Alongside Matty Johns and Gus Worland, Geyer has had a successful run with the breakfast show, which has held its own in the ratings over the last decade.

The Grill Team recently celebrated its 2000th show on Triple M.

49-year-old Geyer reinvented himself as a media personality after a rugby league career that saw him play 180 first grade games, most of them with Penrith.

Geyer made the announcement of his departure on the breakfast show this morning.

A replacement is yet to be announced.

Geyer will stay connected with the Triple M network, taking up a position with the NRL commentary team on weekends.

“My daughter Rafferty was a baby when I started breakfast radio, she’s now 10 and I’ve never been able to drop her at school,”  Geyer said this morning.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better way to have spent the past eight years; with our Triple M listeners and The Grill Team family! I’ll certainly miss the daily laughs but I’m really excited for a new adventure with Triple M NRL.”
