Roo & Ditts renew breakfast spot with Triple M Adelaide

Triple M Adelaide breakfast duo, Mark Ricciuto and Chris Dittmar, have renewed their contract for another three years.

Starting out in Triple M’s drive slot in 2011,  the pair moved to breakfast in June 2014 as part of the Southern Cross Austereo owned station’s attempt to move off the bottom of Adelaide’s commercial M radio ratings.

In the last Adelaide radio survey, Triple M was third of the commercial FM stations with an audience share of 9.9, ahead of HIT107’s 8.3% but well behind Nova’s 10.5% and Mix102.3’s 15.4%.
