The Hot Breakfast format is based on the Grill Team format pioneered by Triple M Melbourne in the early 1990s, merging sport, comedy and music with a more talkback style of radio.

In July 2017, Triple M announced that Mick Molloy would host a new national drive show with Jane Kennedy across the Triple M network in 2018. As a result he will leave The Hot Breakfast.[3]
