After a brief hiatus Scotty McDonalds former Nite Alive co-host, Sally Platell, has come back to co-host the Drive show with him from 3-6pm.
The new mother of seven-month-old, Penelope, was keen to return so she could get back to keeping Scotty in line.
Were very competitive with each other. Often times we both think were right some would say were like an old married couple, she said.
There is a sense of warmness and friendship between the two though. Their relationship spans four years on and off air and began in 2008 driving 96fives Street Machines together, then co-hosting Nite Alive from 2010 to September 2011.
Scottys welcomed having some company in the studio again.
I have someone who can laugh at my jokes again, not just the crickets, he said.
Its not just fun and games for the duo though. Theyre looking forward to broadcasting a program that gives back to the community and families in particular.
Come 3pm each day, Monday to Friday, you can expect a show that uplifts Brisbanefamilies; a show that encourages but also entertains, Scotty said.
Part of that entertainment factor is Sallys mission to be an example of a good, responsible mum that still lives on the edge.
Think Scottys planning on throwing me in one of those Ekka Toyota Hilux stunt cars in August, she said.
Word on the street is its not just for the entertainment factor.
Since she came back all I ever hear about is Penelopes bodily functions. She even shows me photos of her used nappies. Its not great for someone with a weak stomach, Scotty said.
To keep tabs on these two you can follow them on Twitter @Scotty_McDonald and @SalPlatell and tune in to 96five from 3pm – 6pm weekdays.
