Legendary broadcaster and Triple M Icon Doug Mulray has passed away aged 71.
As we send our love to Doug’s family and loved ones and mourn a true spiritual leader of Triple M, we remember Uncle Doug’s amazing speech on being inducted to the Commercial Radio Australia Hall of Fame in 2019.
At the same time, many of those who worked alongside Uncle Doug on Triple M Sydney shared their incredible memories of a true golden age.
Andrew Denton, Rod Muir, Charlie Fox, Dave Gibson and more all shared their fond recollections of Doug and working on a show that had everything from a Tiger pooing on the floor of the office to chainsawing a boardroom table… allegedly.
