Triple M’s Moonman In The Morning to host domestic violence awareness special on Sunday

Triple M Sydney’s breakfast show Moonman In The Morning will host a one-hour special on Sunday titled Moonman Takes On Domestic Violence, calling on potential perpetrators to ask for help.

The move comes in the wake of ongoing headlines and concern around the murder of Hannah Clarke and her three children Aaliyah, Laianah and Trey by Clarke’s estranged husband.

There has also been scrutiny on the media’s handling of reporting around the issue, in particular outlets which framed the killer as an “ex NRL star” and loving father.

The host of Moonman In The Morning, Lawrence Mooney said: “We wanted to tackle domestic violence a different way, so we’re asking those who think they have the potential for violence to put up their hand and ask for help.”

Guests will include psychotherapist Kaylene Wynn, who is a former White Ribbon ambassador, a Triple M listener who broke an AVO 21 times before he eventually was sent to jail and “rehabilitated himself”, and a NSW Police officer who works in the domestic violence department. The show will also feature on-air team member Jess Eva sharing a personal story about domestic violence.

The show will broadcast at 5pm on Sydney’s Triple M 104.9.

If you need support, 1800 Respect is available 24 hours a day for people impacted by sexual assault, domestic or family violence and abuse. Contact them on 1800 737 732.
