State of Origin coach Kev Walters returns to Triple M Brisbane

Queensland State of Origin coach and former Brisbane Broncos captain, Kev Walters, is rejoining the team at Triple M Brisbane.

Walters will feature on The Rush Hour every Wednesday night, co-hosting with Ben ‘Dobbo’ Dobbin, as well as delivering his regular Monday commentary on The Big Breakfast with ‘Marto, Margaux and Nick Cody’.

Walters played for the Broncos for the majority of his extensive playing career and holds the record for most finals appearances. He was appointed as Queensland State of Origin captain in 2015.

Triple M Brisbane content director Scott Menz said the station couldn’t be more stoked to welcome Walters back.

“He first joined the Triple M team back in 2014 for Dead Set Legends and we all discovered that his on-air chemistry with Dobbo combined with his expert coaching brain generated a swag of thumbs ups from our listeners. He’s always given us an inside look into the world of Rugby League in Brisbane and of course, he’s the best bloke to give ‘Dobbo’ an absolute ribbing on the air – we love that,” said Menz.

Walters said: ”I’m over the moon to re-join the Triple M family and get behind the mic again in Brisbane. I’ve always loved coming into these studios and having fun, so I can’t wait to kick off.”

Walters co-hosts The Rush Hour with Ben Dobbin every Wednesday night 6-7pm and joins The Big Breakfast every Monday morning to review the weekend’s games.
