Former Triple J breakfast host Erica Mallett has finally broken her silence since leaving the network, clarifying that the duo didn’t get axed, but her and Sally Coleman have come to the end of their journey together.
Mallett took to Instagram to share her side of the story in a lengthy post on Sunday.
“I know I’ve been a bit quiet lately. I wanted to let you guys know first-hand what’s been going on and needed some time to gather myself before I did,” she began the post.
“The first thing I want to say is that Sally and Erica didn’t get axed from Triple J. In fact, the show was doing really well,” she said.
“We were getting great feedback across the board – from management and our listeners. Until recently, we were all planning for a 2021 where Sally and Erica would grow and grow.”
But after clarifying that the duo were not axed from the station, she asserted that personally, she wanted to continue.
“I wanted breaky to continue. I really did, with my whole heart,” Mallett said.
However, she then went on to explain that although the radio duo were doing great, Sally and Erica (the people) were sort of at the end of their journey as a pair.
“Unfortunately, the reality was that although Sally and Erica – the show was going great guns, Sally and Erica – the people were coming to the natural conclusion of their 8-year creative ride together,” she wrote.
For those of you who may not know, Sally and Erica also released music together as Coda Conduct. However, it appears that in addition to Triple J breakfast being done, Coda Conduct *probably* is too.
On a positive note, Mallett confirmed that she’ll still be releasing music and writing, as well as a number of new creative things.
“I’m dipping my toes into areas that excite me and I have ideas pouring out so quick I can’t always catch them,” she said.
The news comes as their replacements Bryce & Ebony were announced this morning.
Sally is yet to release a statement.
